Wheel question

Guys,

Evaluating spare wheel options.I can pay $820 and get spare kit from BMW (compact wheel/tyre, jack, false foor) or can look at buying a cheap wheel and tyre and putting it in the boot.

Is anyone aware of any other common manufacturer wheels i.e. holden etc which will fit an E90 stud pattern? If not I may just buy a knock off and put one of my used tyres on it but I realy want something smaller i.e compact or 16".

Why not just get a mobility kit? You will get just as far with a mobility kit as you would with a 16" on a 335..

I just bought the mobility kit, jack and space saver wheel and tyre. Leave all of it in the boot and remove the space saver if I need boot space.

Screw BMW's $500 for a false floor

I am moving to the country and may have to travel a long distance to tyre dealer/home so would prefer a spare also they may not stock the size I need - I don't use the boot anyway.

Size I guess does not matter just thought a 16" would be cheaper. It could be used indefinately if I wanted as

Did you buy all that from BMW for $300? I got quoted $225 for mobility kit alone.

I've been told a space saver tyre from a HSV or Monaro will fit. Same stud pattern but I've haven't personally tried it.

I think the space saver with tyre was about $300. I'd previously bought the jack and mobility kit.

Saw some poor bastard yesterday in his M3 using the goo kit .... was almost tempted to stop and offer to rent him my space saver
