space saver wheel
#1
Hi All, I  am still after a space saver wheel for my 63 plate gtc ,I did purchase a new but second hand one & I thought great, but when I tried to fit it, the studs didn't line up, they was only a fraction out & didn't want to force the wheel on. I was told it came off a J GTC, so perhaps mine isn't a " J " but I didn't know there was a difference. Luckily I was able to return the wheel. I was also told that a s/saver from a Cascada  will fit , any help will be appreciated, thanks

Think larger engines/diesels are 115x5 stud holes, while smaller engines have 105x5 stud holes. Doesn't matter whether GTC, 5 door or sports tourer.

Hope this helps.
