spare tire

Hi Tolsten

From the looks of your manual it appears your vehicle was not meant for the UK.

my guess is you prefer the German manual?

Somehow I thought you were Scottish from the choice of words you use in some of your posts? but that obviously means nothing.

Never seen this in the 2005 or 2006 Canadian manuals.

Does your vehicle have a special cavity for this donut tire?

My handbook tells me spare wheel is behind driver's seat:

I store krik, wielmoersleutel, bandenzak and gebruicksaanwijzing in centre of wheel.

I think I'll make this extension to Mr. Smartcar...

Our dealer got a bunch of OEM spares in and I have one.

I have two of the 3.5 inch wheels still, and two 135 mm tires on them! These were paired together on German cdi originally. Mike would have I think a 115 mm actual spare tire? Whereas I ordered mine to be front wheels. I still have these paired with some 451 front wheels (4.5 inch wheel, 155mm tire) which, with spacers and then fitted on the rear, become a very nice set of skinnies. That, or if the canada1 sold without the spare wheel sets I have, I guess I could break all of this up into spares for those without..... not that in 2016 there'd be that much interest of course!
