Yep, looks good to me and the bit of space round the edges accommodates the nuts.. :)

Hi all

I am still trying to work out what size spare to get. Would the stud sizes be compatible with the Peugeot 4 stud wheels or an older C4 wheel. I am thinking of the ones in the eBay listings below as I would like the wheel tool tidy as well. Can any one assist?

Or this one

Thanks!

Ok, so referring to the OP. That is the correct size space saver wheel, certainly if you are on 17" alloys. The garage supplied the correct spare but I did purchase the plastic retaining bolt from Citroen. It was less than £8.

It seems that if you are a diesel owner the space saver sits face up with the plastic crew/nut holding it in place. This is due to the Ad Blu tank. The tools are in a pouch with velcro that lives under the passenger seat.

Petrol owners with a spare should find that their space saver sits face down with the plastic mould in the centre to hold all the tools.

Hope this helps.

Mike.

Had a couple of cactus courtesy cars which have had full size spare tyres in. The correct/official size appears to be:

185/65R15

Rim is J6 with an offset of 23

The bolts are 4 X 108.

The tyres are an 88t

Hope that makes sense

Cheers

I have removed the tractor sized front tyre I had a spare (Never used it yet) I stumped up £35 for a C4 Alloy (with a serviceable tyre with nail in :oops: ) from the net. Because of the adiblu tank for the diesel is fitted, I had to put small pieces of wood under my mat. Now it fits very neatly in there.

Old but unloved one.

Pretty much a straight replacement in case of puncture.

I recently purchased a 16 plate 1.2turbo petrol 110 cactus and it only had a inflation kit in the boot.
after asking the dealer how much it would be for them to supply one i was quoted £250 for a space saver, I politely declined.

A little search on ebay and a couple of emails to the seller i purchased a 'full sized' spare wheel with jack and tool kit for £140. (free shipping and it came in one day! )

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CITROEN-C4-C ... 2749.l2649

it fits perfectly in the wheel well in the boot and you can even use the little plastic securing bolt that held the inflation kit in place.
