If you purchased the car from a Honda Dealership, - have a go at them, as they shouldn't have sold the car without them.OK, i have neither in my newly acquired CTR.. where can i get the tyre foam from? - And i gather any 12v Compressor will do? Help appreciated!
I thought about getting a 5th alloy and put it in the recess (but without the lid) and make a feature of it...It does'nt just have mine tied up lying flat on the boot floor has then i dont have to worry about using the funny foam and be restricted to speed if i have spacesaver.
Yeh go for it I have 5 Standard 18" CTR wheels in the shed (long story) and 8 on the cars outside, but I wouldn't drive around with one in the boot all the time they are heavy.Yeah but as has been said - for me to have nothing is illegal?? I have breakdown roadside assistance so i can be recovered, but if i can get this wheel cheap enough then is it a good idea?
All of the different wheel sizes on the Civic have more or less the same rolling diameter. The wall height of the tyres are different on the various rim diameters so making the overall diameters similar. The space saver is suitable for all sizes.The problem is i have the 19 inch Rage alloys so would a spacesaver not be a complete waste of time due to the rolling diameter?? Or could i get away with it? Would rather that than the gunk personally..
theres some garages riping people off over this,. the honda manual does say to take it back to a honda dealer who then can wash it out with hot washing up liquid and repair it . or i presume it can be left in.never had to use it, but i wouldnt trust using the foam... i have little faith in it, just doesnt seem right!
plus (think this is true - someone might want to add to this) i've heard injecting the foam is only a quick fix and ultimately makes the tyre unrepairable again?!? ... not good if a simple puncture repair in the first place would've saved the tyre.
look on ebay and the ads on here.. something will turn up! I managed to get a 17" honda alloy that had a brand new budget tyre on it for £37!! steal of the year!!! i was grinning all the way home after collecting it!
