    Searching for a spacesaver wheel for my BMW X1 2017 F48, with lever and jack. Best price I can find is around £169 on Ebay. Being a tight Yorkshireman I thought this was expensive, Don't mind if it is a good usd one. Any advice wher I might get a cheaper one please.

    Well after a bit of experimenting, Ive finally got a spacesaver for my 840: :hihi :lol :eek :jaw-dropping The reason is my Schätzchen runs on LPG with a doughnut tank where the spare wheel was. Having a full sized spare fills the boot which causes woman friction ( I told you you...

    Hi all, I am on the lookout for a 17 inch spacesaver, ideally for an E38 7 series or e31 8 series but will consider 17" from other models particularly if you are close enough to Stockport to try it. Some of the 3 and 5 series had 17" and although I am mainly looking at 1990s cars some of the...

    I'm changing the 17" wheels with runflats for 16" with conventional tyres in the hope of a smoother ride. Does the E46 16" spacesaver fit onto the E90 hubs? Do E46 wheels fit onto E90 hubs?

    Hi, my 1st post :hihi I have recently ditched the runflats on my 2006 118d. It is fitted with 205/55R16 tyres. Which E46 space save should I be looking for, 15" or 16"? 15" would appear to be the best size for a rolling radius match but will it clear the brakes? I'm also confused as the...

    I also need to know what space saver spare wheel i can use as I am now going to run my 118D m sport on non run flat tyres. i have 17" standard m sport wheels. I believe a spacesaver from an e46 may do it but then someone told me the 17" is ok but due to offset it may not clear the calipers or...
