Spacesaver compatability

Our Bravo has got a can of gunk instead of a spare. Before we go on holiday to Italy in it this year I would like to get at least a skinny spacesaver. From Fiat they are pricey, but there are plenty of other Fiat model ones from ebay (Puntos, Pandas etc..). As long as they have 4 studs I am assuming they are all compatable. Am I right in saying this? How big is a Bravo spacesaver? Thanks

Closest is probably a Stilo space saver. 15" 98x4 PCD.

Re: Spacesaver compatability

Alfa ones wont fit as they are 5 stud. Im not that bothered about a full size wheel unless that will fit in the well with the tools and jack. I went the full size way in my Alfa and now have an annoying jack sliding around in the boot.

Re: Spacesaver compatability

My car came with 16" steels, replaced by the 16" alloys within 2 days, just swapping the tyres over. My local tyre garage put a part worn tyre on one of the steels, which I use as a spare. It fits the spare wheel well, and I'm not restricted on speed and distance if I need to use it.

I've still got 3 steel rims available. If you want one of them, its FOC, but you would need to arrange collection near Peterborough. Courier collection? PM me if you are interested.

Never heard of Peterborough near Aberdeen. Last time I drove home it was in Cambridgeshire! However, my aunt and cousin live in Bridge of Allan, so I know where Stirling is

Re: Spacesaver compatability

I called Fiat out of interest to see how much a "tool kit" is. A mere 115! I asked if it was made of gold at that price!

Does the Bravo have 17mm or 19mm bolts, does anyone know?

I don't know! I have a dual-ended 17/19 socket on my wheel brace (About 5 from Tesco - although mine came free with a car I bought years ago!).
