Correct size of spacesaver for R18?

Post by Jonblue » Tue Nov 03, 2020 9:39 am

I think I have finally found a Spacesaver tyre for my T Cross R Line with 18inch wheels. However, the size listed is 125/70 R18. I get confused by all the differing tyre specs.so can anyone confirm this measurement will fit? Thanks

I've just bought a 16" wheel with a 205/55/16 tyre as recommended on here. More grip than a skinny and almost the same rolling radius

Lots of information on here re "space saver" spare wheel....just search for other posts.
I'm not sure that the 18 inch tyre is the way to go..VW supply a 16 inch..

BarryMac -- the spec of that tyre gave a 63 cms height of wheel/tyre which matches my R Line wheels. Have you got a link to where you got your R LINE spacesaver as I cannot find it listed. Thanks.

I took the part numbers from a t-cross in a dealers showroom that had the factory spare wheel option and ended up sourcing them from a seat dealer as they were considerably cheaper than VW for the same part numbers!

Should also point out if you look at the label on you drivers door pillar you will see that 205.55.16 is actually specified on the car as the correct spare tyre size.

This is the official spare supplied to me by VW for my T Cross R line with 18” wheels in 2019. 205/60 R16. Don’t know if that helps the discussion!

I have the skinny 18" space saver wheel and can confirm that it fits on the Cross. 125/70R18 is the standard space saver size which comes on most VW cars. The dealer supplied space saver for Cross is 205/55R16 but that is a full size wheel although is marketed as space saver.
