Wanted: Spare wheels
« on: 09 December 2017, 07:07:49 »

Im based in Coventry, so pretty central, though be heading back up to cleethorpes for christmas,  so potential to collect from further up north if needs be. Ideally new tyre or little use, hold air, oh, and I might even offer some money if you insist  :D

If youve got any PFL V6 or Monza bits, you might have some other parts that might make a longer journey worthwhile. Just pm me, ta in advance  :)

Aye, that's what I've done, 17's as spares in the two with 17" wheels and a 19" for the car with 18's. All fit in the saloon spare wheel location, minor modification required to get the cover to clip back in place.

all the ones, you say? How many you got? Im just trying to ensure ive got reserve rubber with decent tread on, now we're in 6ft of snow, so long as the width matches across the axle (so a minimum of two, for those of you whove never seen a car before  ::) )

Also baza, I accept your offer, the price is reasonable.  :y  ;)

I see you subscribe to the DBG / Baza school of finance...  :y

Just looking at potential couriers - as sadly at Pissy mpg that's about 60 quid of fuel to get to yours and back, haha.

Although you are now no doubt sorted, but for what it's worth, not all the 15" tyres fitted as spares were the same. There were different speed and load ratings, depending on the wheel and tyre size of the vehicle it was a spare for.
The details of the tyre size it was a replacement for are displayed on the label in the wheel centre of the steel spare.
As a spare it wouldn't be vitally important as a 'get you home' wheel, but if two were being fitted on the same axle for continuous use as possibly winter wheels, ideally they should be of the same speed and load rating.
