I have recently purchased a C-Max which is fitted with 205/50 R17
wheels/Tyres and came without a spare (space Saver) but with a repair kit.
Without going into details, I had a bad puncture and the reapir kit was
a waste of time! I am looking to buy a Space Saver!
Ford info was also a waste of time. I see from the handbook that the
Saver size (for ALL vehicles - and presumably they mean 16 and 17 inch
is T125/85R 162. These numbers do not seem to indicate a wheel size?
May I ask anyone:-
Are there different size tyres of this spec to fit 16 and 17 inch wheels?
If not and the wheel is 16 inch, can I put it (temporarily!) on an axle
with my other 17 inch wheel? I do not understand the spec numbers and
am wondering whether the tyre walls are larger to accomodate the 1 inch
reduction in wheel size?
Or am I being very ignorant ??
