I'm looking for a space saver tyre for my Celica.

Do the gen 5 ST18X Celicas come with a space saver tyre normally or full alloy tyre?

If not, which other model Toyota spare saver tyre would fit?

 

Any ideas?

They come with a full size spare on a rim that's the same as the stock wheels. Stock tyre size is 205/55/R15 if memory serves. The stud spacing is 5x100. Maybe just grab one from the wreckers?

 

It's hard to see but the 5th Gen in your avatar looks like it has bigger rims and tyres than stock. You might want to take into consideration the dangers of driving on a spare that's a different size. Space savers seem like a terrible idea to me for this reason. Like, just crazy dangerous. Just my 2c though.

I think the FWD versions came with a full size spare but my 185 came with a space saver.

 

Since I do a fair bit of highway driving I just leave a full size spare belted into the rear seat - it's a 16" rim instead of the 18s, but rolling diameter of the tyre is almost exactly the same.  It's not like the rear seats are that useful for passengers most of the time anyway, and can always chuck it in the back if I do need to give someone a lift.

Thanks guys,

 

The tyres on the celica are 215/xxR/17.

The OD is identical to stock and the speedometer is spot on against GPS.

 

I suspect the OEM space saver would be the same OD.

 

The reason why I ask is because the spare tyre well is not deep enough to accommodate a full size tyre. So the current tyre sticks out and the plywood on top is bowing out of shape to suit. The whole thing at the floor of the hatch just looks... eeek.

 

Anyone here got a spare ST184 space saver?

 

Thanks

Peter
