Space Saver type with 17" wheels

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to pick up a space saver wheel for my 2nd hand fiesta MK6 which has 17" wheels.

I've looked around and the space saver wheel's I've seen are all 14" or 15" - is there such a thing as a 17" space saver?  Do I just look for one that has a tyre fitted so the rolling radius ends up being 17", if so what tyre size that be?  Thanks

There aren't any 17" spacesavers.  The original size would have been 125/80/15 for the Mk6 with 17s.

If you want a proper spare wheel not the skinny space saver then you need a 14" with 175/65/14 tyre which is what mine came from the factory with

You can buy a 17" alloy off ebay with a 205/40/17 tyre, this will fit in the well BUT will sit approx 1" higher therefore lifting the carpet, to combat this put some padding around the edges to level it out - i did this on a previous fiesta ST2
