Many thanks for that. So do you think that using it on emergencies only would be ok and not breaking law. It certainly sounds better idea than a spare mini wheel. what would you advise?Hi, there is a diff. of 11mm Radius. (215*.50 and 215*.55)
It wil look like overload at that side.
Not so good for the Body if used for a long distance.
I'm no expert on its function but fitting a non standard diameter wheel may well confuse the abs sensor system, and possibly also the stability control system (I think both function on comparison with the rotation speed differential between the wheels). I've only had my CX-30 for nearly a week (downsized from a CX-5) and I mentioned the spare wheel issue to my sales exec. (I have seen on the internet that a spare wheel is supplied in a number of countries) He seemed to think that Mazda may well introduce the option/availability in the UK, but he didn't have a time-scale (He said Mazda are good at listening to/responding to customer feedback. Cue for opposing views ?!!!). I am firmly against the jungle-juice and electric pump option as use of the juice requires tyre replacement as it prevents a repair patch being galvanised onto the tyre structure (so a new tyre just for one small nail hole !). If Mazda do introduce availablity of a spare wheel in the UK, the only issue will be cost, as it will cost more as an individual item than choosing as an option for a new car, as there will be no off-set in pricing by not having the electric pump and appropriate boot insert. Perhaps those interested should give Mazda UK feedback on our requirement. This post has galvanised me into contacting Mazda UK myself.
@Lordhenry what contact did you use to give feedback to Mazda UK?This post has galvanised me into contacting Mazda UK myself.
Another inconsistence in different regions. Here in US the spare is standard equipment yet not even offered there...@Lordhenry what contact did you use to give feedback to Mazda UK?
I'm waiting on delivery of our SE-L Lux first week of September, really excited about the car and very happy with the deal I've got from Beckenham Mazda (Bradley but was disappointed that there was no factory space-saver spare wheel option! Defo going to add my voice to the feedback on this, would be nice if Mazda gave existing owners a reasonably priced after-sales option to put a space saver spare wheel in the boot. Considering VW offer it as a meer £70 extra on factory T-Roc orders, for example...
