I am still looking for a spare wheel. I can not believe how much the cost I have been quoted by the dealer I tow a caravan so having a spare is important and not a 16 inch as my wheels are 18 inch. If anyone knows of one for sale please contact me thanks .

If you do a search in the box above you can find numerous articles relating to this, i got mine from mytyres .com 16 inch steel wheel and tyre about £120 and its the same size as a vx spare.

Thanks for your reply , but towing a caravan with a smaller wheel is not good so I need the same size wheel and tyre which are 18 inch ok. .

The std 16" wheel and tyre outside diameter is more or less the same as the 18" with a lower profile tyre.

Try partshark they have a couple of antaras they are breaking and are competitively priced. A wheel wont cost a lot from them :-)

Im all lost in the supermarket, I can no longer shop happily, I came in here for the special offer, a guaranteed personality!

Hi Chauffeur Yes as long as outside diameter similar no problems i used to carry a 16" spare for my 19" standards and used no problem towing.
