Bloody space saver

Last night o had flat on the front so jacked it up to fit the space saver. When going to fit the space saver it wouldn't go over the brembo calipars on my 6 so had to fit a rear wheel on to the front and the space saver on the rear. Anyone else come over this or is the space saver the wrong type cos it's silly of it only fits on the rear.

yep, normal for the earlier evo's, i think the later ones, maybe 8+ have a different spacesaver that will fit the front, not sure though

I have a can of tyre foam in the car for the above reason just in case as its a right pain to change over.

It's a good job they dont fit on the front tbh! i'd never drive with one on the front....can you imagine what the steering would be like!! bloody dangerous even under 50mph, much better on the back

The one thing a 260 has that JDM cars don't, due to the EU type approval the space save fits over the front Brembo's.
