MY spare is different to all the other tyres and prevents the boot floor fitting properly.
Spyder solution to the floor problem was to fit the spare deflated! So I have
a incorrect sized, flat spare. Super!

It is a virtually new tyre so any good to anyone? Free to collect when I've fitted a new spare tyre.

I think I understand...why not make a spare boot floor is the tyre is too wide?

I'd sooner just change the tyre rather than chop the floor about.

Besides the tyre is different from the other 4.

Why not fit original size all round.
