Spare wheel Honda Jazz i-VTEC EX Navi CVT 2019

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys our trusty Honda Jazz I VTEC ES CVT 2011 has just been written off by some clown driving into the back of it. IK had purchased a spare 15 inch wheel for it as a spare, haven't got anytime for the fancy gunk and pump. We have now purchased a 2019 Jazz I-VTEC EX Navi CVT that doesn't even haver a jack with it let alone a spare wheel. I have made enquiries at my local supplier and he tells me they can't get me a spare wheel, albeit they did get me one for my 2011 jazz. I've asked the guys in the dealership and they tell me you can't put a full size spare in the boot of the new jazz as it would lift the floor level of the boot and would not be legal when taking the MOT. I've tried my 15 inch spare in the boot well and it is okay. Do you have any answers for me? If I get  a 16 inch wheel and tyre will it fit or could I use the 15 inch wheel that I already have just to get me home if ever I needed to. Would appreciate any thoughts or expertise you might haver on the subject as Honda only want to see me sitting beside the road waiting for the AA after the bottle of gunk hasn't worked.

 

Cheers Bob

Hi Bob

 

I can see your dilemma.

The main problem I see is that rolling diameter will be different and this can cause faults such as the ABS sensing a disparity between this wheel and the others on the car.

If you were to see if there is a tyre with a taller profile that would equate to the same rolling diameter then I don't see an issue with using it.

As long as the wheel fits the boot well I cannot see why it would fail an MOT though.

Hi Folks

Problem solved. Full size wheel with tyre, scissor jack, wrench, clamping bolt for wheel in the boot all for £115-00. Looked online and found the Wheel Shop in Manchester. They supply spare wheels for all vehicles who's manufacturers don't supply spares. The wheel, jack and wrench all fit in the well in the boot. The wheel is bolted down so no MOT problem and the floor of the boot sits at the same level position as original.

Great result Bob!

It's worth publicising the supplier as I'm sure there are lots of people out there who desire a full size spare wheel in their car.
