Space saver tyre (mini wheel)

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

Does anyone know what size the mini wheel is for a 55 plate focus hatch? ive currently got a full size spare but am getting annoyed with the small boot to want to invest in a mini wheel.

Thanks in advance

Hi, it is NOT just the wheel u need. the clamp is different so is the boot carpet.

And don't forget that space-saver wheels are speed-limited (to 50mph normally). You're probably better off with your full-size spare.

My understanding is that the 'mini' wheel is narrower than the normal full-size wheel, the tyre has to be run at a higher pressure (60psi?) and is limited to a maximum 50mph.

That is certainly the case on my daughter's Fiesta.
