Hi, I asked for a quotation to have my car equiped with a space saver spare instead of the puncture repair outfit which UK cars seem to come with as standard equipment. I cant say that I am admirer of the puncture repair option and I dont think too much to the space saver either ;however its a case of the lesser of 2 evils. I would prefer to have a full sized spare wheel and tyre which match the remainder of the wheels on the car. The cost of the space saver was just a few pence short of £500 and the majority of the cost was the adaptor kit to fit it into the car boot rather than the wheel itself. I wonder how much a standard wheel costs?
