Question Spare wheel options

I'd like to get a space saver wheel for the car so have been looking at new and 2nd hand options.
Coxmotors have one for 170 and there are quite a few on ebay.
These mainly seem to be 15 or 16 inch wheels/tyres ?

I have 17 inch 5 stud wheels so what should I be looking for ?

I've contacted a few of the ebay sellers and they don't seem to supply the retaining bolt and plate either.

Confused of Kent.

16 inch wheel 135 80 16 is the profile of the tyre

Look for one form an honda accord as they fit the civic just fine and are also cheaper

I made up a DIY plate and bolt for mine- its a relatively standard thread. I'll be selling my 16 s/s wheel in the next day or two sill will pop it up on the forum. I also had 17 alloys

I would never consider buying any rubber off Ebay or similar. You don't know its history or age.

Depending on where you look tyres should be replaced every 6 to 10 years regardless of use as the rubber starts to degrade, even unused and in the dark, out of sunlight.

For the 9G you'll probably need the toolkit as well if it's a MY13 or newer.

What does MY13 refer to ?

Ive done it twice now and both of the wheels I've bought still have the little rubber spikes on them and paint round the tyre showing they were both unused.

You should find the date of manufacture on the tyre sidewall. Look for DOT followed by 4 digits e.g. 2513 is week 25 2013.
Hope this helps.

I just keep a repair kit and pump in my car.
I got rid of the space saver.

It is not the gunk repair either, the one where you plug it and then pump it.

Wonder why they didn't design the well to be a bit deeper so a normal wheel and tyre would have fitted.
