Spare wheel

I have just discovered the van has no spare wheel
or even the cradle underneath for one
Yeah I know, shoulda checked.

Anyway, I'm thinking about grabbing a second hand space saver wheel
and see one with tools for a 308 T7 MK1 so would that fit or does anyone have
tips on compatible wheels for a 2006 Expert?
I see it has 205/65/R15 tyres fitted so 15" rims

Re: Spare wheel

Wait, you mean someone's removed the cradle? Could you get hold of a spare cradle and fit it to yours?

Re: Spare wheel

yep the cradle has been removed at some time and there's a big space under the floor at rear
I see the floor drains have pipes hanging down from them but cant see why they had the remove the
spare wheel to do that unless they say a capture tank under there at one time.

Anyroadup, I have no spare or means of stowing it underneath.

Re: Spare wheel

If you have breakdown insurance you could get away without a spare wheel.

Re: Spare wheel

I think with breakdown you need to have the kit to repair, but don't need to actually use it. May have imagined thatt though.
