    he looks like the sort of chap who has no problem rubbing his guts in a circular motion with one hand while patting his head with the other after a few drinks



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    Either fit. Tyre wall is different, ensuring rolling circumference is in tolerance.

    Note brand of tyre differs also.

    Both fit. Different tyre walls compensate circumference.

    does the 17 incher fit over the front brake caliper though? Pain in the Harris having to swap front to rear etc if you get a front puncture

    The 18” version definitely fits (both front and rear) tested it, during a spring clean.

    Side note, anybody that has a scissor jack, investigate if you need additional leverage (It is a heavy vehicle).

    Furthermore, suggest investment in a decent wheel brace. https://www.screwfix.com/p/laser-telescopic-wheel-brace-500mm/13244?tc=FB9&ds_kid=92700023752918269&ds_rl=1241687&ds_rl=1245250&ds_rl=1243318&ds_rl=1247848&ds_rl=1245250&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpe_9gYur4gIVVojVCh0Plg7OEAQYAiABEgL4nPD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

    and a torque wrench to do the nuts up to 100lbft would be handy too.

    Would the use of a spare wheel invalidate insurance, as car dosn’t have one as standard or option? anyone told their insurance company ?

    Bit of back tracking on my previous post, below my installation of spare wheel. Thought I’d try a different way.

     

    I used fire rated expanding foam to form a new wheel well, lined & wrapped everything in low tack protector, applied foam, sit spare wheel on unset foam, leave for a week, bit of trimming, new foam wheel-well made. All in cost around £100 and countless hours of pleasure.

    ratchet strap to hold wheel in place

    wrapped in low tack before foaming

    after a week removed wrapped wheel,

    bit of trimming & black spray to look better

    jack kit, complete with wheel nutsall fitted & secured in place

    lost around 45mm of boot space, ho hum
