Spare Wheel

Postby Paddy » Thu Sep 24, 2009 9:17 pm

I was talking to a friend today about wheels in the meggy,

He says his spare wheel was a steel wheel but he has the standard 16" alloys.

I thought all meganes that had alloys as standard, the spare was also an alloy.

Steel spare and different bolts. Why would any manufacturer give away a free alloy? Be greatful it isn't a space-saver.

Best advice for Megane owners: sell it before it bankrupts you!

Im not, i just always thought they came with a fifth alloy, as my car did. I was surprised when my chum said his was a steel...
