    S3 spare wheel

    Could someone please let me know what size the space saver is that comes with the 8P S3 as I have S3 brakes fitted and my 22/70R16 spare doesn't fit over the calliper, so I'll have to invest in a new spare I think for piece of mind. I guess it will fit in the recess in my boot, unless the S3's is bigger?

    Cheers,
    Scott

    I think what markie is getting at is that you could swap one of your rear alloys up front if the callipers on the rear might be small enough for the SS

    Unfortunately it doesn't fit over the rear caliper either.

    i could be completely wrong here but i thought the new s3s came with inflation kits? however you could look into the spacesaver wheels from the bigger models - a4 and a6s and check if they fit?
