does vw golf have spare wheel

does vw golf have spare wheel插图

This has come up before and no,VWwill not pay the dealer to give you a larger spare wheel. Your spare is the smallest wheel that will fit over your front brakes. For MkV Jettas like yours and MkVI Golfs,that is a 15 wheel. JSWs have larger front brakes so they come with a 16 spare.

Can you put a spare tyre on a VW R?

The temporary spare needs the exact same rolling radius or tyre circumference as the wheel it replaces on the R else you’ll play havoc with the 4WD system and might even damage it. While what the dealer said is BS there is a reason why VW have not offered a spare with the car.

Does your car actually have a spare wheel?

However, this could be the moment you discover that your car doesn’t actually have a spare wheel. According to tyre maker Continental, drivers suffer a puncture on average every 44,000 miles or five years, so many people won’t know whether their car has a spare wheel or not.

Will a spare wheel fit on a Mk8?

For the mk8, it would just have to go on the rear on the as the front brakes are bigger than previous gen. As mentioned the whole spare wheel set from a 7.5 R will fit. In fact if you are prepared to do a rear to front swap if you get a front puncture then the spare wheel from lesser 7.5’s might do the job on the rear (see below though.)

Are tyre repair kits better than spare wheels?

Over the past decade, more and more car manufacturers have ditched conventional spare wheels for tyre repair kits. They cite two main reasons for this: repair kits take up less space and are lighter, thus aiding fuel economy. But there’s a third reason: cost.

Has anyone managed to either get a spare wheel and toolkit for the R? Just been told VW will not sell me one from the parts department as they can’t as it effects the emissions. Looks like ordering one at time of order can’t be done and wasn’t an option.

Does anyone know or can find out what the actual part number is of the wheel vw would sell you? Is it a 19” space saver? Found a vw dealer that wants £585 for the lot. Does the old mk7 one fit over the front brakes?

I kept the spare wheel and polystyrene inserts from my 7.5 after it was written off and it slotted straight in, the floorpan in the rear is identical so look for parts for an older golf

As mentioned the whole spare wheel "set" from a 7.5 R will fit. In fact if you are prepared to do a rear to front swap if you get a front puncture then the spare wheel from lesser 7.5’s might do the job on the rear (see below though.)
