Re: SPACESAVER WHEEL HAVE I DONE DAMAGE

Hi

I've been doing up my alloys one at a time the hard way. Lots of sanding priming, spraying and laquering. While doing them I've run round on my space saver for up to a week. Speeds up to 60 ish - maybe a little more - and not a problem. Tell your mate to get out more why would Subaru give you a spare wheel that would cause damage.

Another of the Scooby old wives tales based on drivel.

Re: SPACESAVER WHEEL HAVE I DONE DAMAGE

Depends on the diameter of the wheels + tyres i would guess. If you are running standard diameter then should be no problem as can't imagine Subaru would give you a space saver that would be a different size and thus damage or put strain on your diffs.

Dont worry no damage will occur if that was the case as above subaru would not supply that spare wheel
