Not quite sure the story but there's loads of spacesaver or standard Panda-fit wheels on ebay locally.


This one's dear - I paid 15 for a similar last week for our new Lounge:

Re: Spare wheel

Thanks for that, only thing I noticed is it is a 14' not 15', so not sure if I could use it or not.

You could USE it yes, though the rolling circumference may differ. My spare is a 135/80-14 and that has a smaller rolling circumference than the standard 185/55-15.


Look in your handbook and see what it would be. The wheel well is pretty tight.

Re: Spare wheel

I believe the 14" wheel wont fit over the Cross's (and 4x4's) larger (than other Panda models) front disc brakes...
and yes, the 15 spacesaver WILL fit in the spare wheel well (I have one) - but correct to say a full size 15" wheel will not. Correct tyre is 125/80R15 for the space saver on the 4x4 models. This is important as by detecting that particular size, the system understands you have a spacesaver on but still allows some degree of 4x4 traction (or so the user manual seems to suggest)

You might also look here http://www.fiatforum.com/panda-iii/3...ml#post4199685 for important info about the different jack needed for the 4x4/Cross models too

Re: Spare wheel

No but comments.
1 A Fiat alloy for my 2017 4x4 is only 135 all in which I thought good value.
2 M&S tyres seem only to be available some of the year. I have two new spare Conti tyres in stock and will let one go at cost to anyone in a fix.
3 A standard wheel will NOT fit in the wheel well so I now have a space saver instead.
4 Check carefully that chosen wheen will go in.
5 A google search yielded a steel wheel for 37 delivered (new) I dont know if it will fit.
as you have to have a 14" wheel to go in the wheel well unless a space saver there seems little point in going the full size tyre route.
My space saver came from my Panda 100HP it fits perfectly.
Ebay has produce 2 jacks for me from -I think - either a 500L or Doblo for about 35 one in the Bravo and 1 in the Panda.

Hope this maybe of help to you or someone somewhere
