Very wise, I did the same with my last car But no void  for it on this one. Mind you, I learned the hard way, no spare and got got a puncture at the beginning of the Gottard (?) Tunnel going into Italy, bit scary sorting that out in the tiny layby with arctics thundering past! But be careful using the spacesaver when towing, not sure it is weight rated for that Tarquin?

Yes Chris the space saver is less than ideal but infinitely better than a can of goop.

I wanted to fit a full size alloy but unfortunately it won't fit and the winch is not rated for the extra weight.

Sorry to bring this up again but I tried to order a spare space saver wheel through ebay and had a problem the system not accepting my credit card. Gave up after several attempts and went back to the search to order from a company directly. Found this one, Promotor Direct Ltd. and placed an order no problem and it arrived today. Guess what, it's the same company and wheel as on ebay and 5quid cheaper! Stuff ebay.

I have often found this, work out who the company is from the Ebay listing and go direct.
