18” Space Saver for Evo 9

Hi there,

I’m looking to source an 18” space saver as all of my wheels are now 18”. Another thing I wanted to check was would an 18” space saver even fit in the factory recess in the boot?

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks.

Think of this another way. The rolling diameter of a 18in wheel plus tyre will be similar to a 17in wheel plus tyre, perhaps 2-3% larger
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!
