4.4 Space Saver Bought

Recommended Posts

I thought that in 2014 UK RAVs the space saver was now fitted as standard?

The 2014 models now come with a spacesaver.

For the 2014 model you can also buy a full size (17" steel wheel) and bag which sits in the boot space area, looks very tidy but you do lose some boot space, it requires a 225/65r17/102h Yokohama Geolander G91 or equivalent

Kingo :thumbsup:

Was tempted by the full size steel wheel but decided against as its not the same size being narrower and different profile. Local dealer advised that you should not drive the car as if all the tyres were the same. Have bought the alloy and original tyre. Will be able to use the tyre in rotation with the original ones . Would not be able to do that with the "full size spare" Only draw back ( other than price ) is it does not have the remote tyre pressure gauge in the valve which apparently costs approx£200 per valve!.

Alloy fits into the wheel well and will fasten down but will need a longer retaining bolt. At the rear seat end wheel sticks out by approx 8 cm. wondering if its worth trying to raise the boot floor to make it flat. Pitty raised boot floor parts not available for the UK market.
