I have got a red spacesaver wheel, which does nt fit, the hole in the centre of the wheel is slightly undersize so i cant understand why it came with the car when i bought it. Its never been used it looks brand new as far as i am aware ive got normal 16v 4 hole hubs, but the wheel will not go on. What size should it be, please enlighten me ! If it is the wrong wheel were would i get one ive tried the local scrappy but no joy !

Strange, I've been using mine lately and it went onto my 96 16v just fine (again, first time it's ever been used by the look of things). I'll measure the size of the central hole later on mine, unless anyone beats me to it...

I had the same prob but mine was just really tight I had to force it on - it does go on but it will need a bit of help (quite a bit)

The bolts should provide you with quite a bit of help [img]/wink.gif[/img] getting it off again might be another story though [img]/tongue.gif[/img]
