You could use "17in" space saver wheel provided you stick to the recommended speed and distance



To complicate the issue, the space saver will only on the rear of an Evo as it wont fit over front Brembo brakes!



Solution. a clueless breakdown service





Cheers Grants. This had crossed my mind too but wasn’t sure how it would play out. In theory could I get a larger profile tyre on the 17” to even it out? I suppose the good thing is this should be a rare situation to get into and sometimes better to get on the road driving with a space saver rather than waiting somewhere remote in Scotland for the AA!
