  • spare wheel/space saver

    The standard space-saver is a 4Jx17 steel rim, with the appropriate tyre fitted (125/70R17).

    Complete wheel and tool kits often come up on ebay

    You can fit a full size wheel in the boot well, but you also need the appropriate foam packing to raise and support the boot floor. And you will loose luggage capacity in the process. You will also need to get a jack and toolkit.



    Caster, another forum member, has been through this. Check out his thread, especially post #25.

    I've got a standard Jack and it lifts mine fine. Netsky and Russ can verify as they watched me do it!

      It's currently buried under work stuff. If I remember I'll get the code at the weekend. Like I say I have witnesses otherwise

        So you have witnesses to your jacking skills. Always wondered what happens at these meets. Lol

            This site has the space savers and tools and two jacks for sale. Don't know what the difference in the jacks are though.

              Did they change something in 2011? I know they changed some electricals that year. Maybe they done some mods to the jacking points on the car

                  The floor raiser should take a full size spare. I have a sport tourer and that's got a lot of space under the flat floor. Its just too small for a 19" but I expect it to take a 17" no problem.

                    My 225/55/17 is the same circumference as my 245/40/19s that are on in the summer. Just because you're on 20s doesn't mean you need a 20" spare. There's a guy selling some 17" steel at the minute that would make a good spare

                      A 17" will fit over the calipers on all models except the VXR.

                            Sorry completely didn't see the GM number. The number stamped on the jack.



                            I think it's on the jacking point. Where there is a little dent in.. you know what I'll go and take a picture... actually scratch that. Yes the jacking point as pictured on the jack
