Quick spacer saver question

Post by patrickbateman » Mon Feb 11, 2019 3:00 pm

Hi,

Planning on taking my z4c on tour this spring and want to take a space saver wheel with me,

Question is,

Will a 17" E90 space saver fit please?


Thanks in advance!

No idea.

I'm into my 8th or 9th year with the Z4's.

In all those years I've only ever had 3 punctures and that was all in the one week with the runflats.

Get breakdown cover and that'll be enough, probably.

Remember, you will need enough space for the biggest wheel - Its probably wet and just drive over a smelly cow pat!
Compressor and a tin of gunk :thumbsup:

You definitely need an E46 space-saver - E90s have run-flats! And as you've said it needs to be a 17" one for a 3.0Si, so you need one that came off a 330i/d.

My E46 Compact had the space-saver in a "bin" that dropped down from under the boot floor that was too small for a regular wheel. A genuine BMW part was a bag to put the mucky flat in - Part No. is 71 12 182 667! I think they're about £6, but you can probably get something suitable on Amazon or Ebay.

Don't forget a jack and wheel-brace. :lol:

Hope you have a great tour, and don't need any of it! :thumbsup:

ETA - Just a thought, but whereabouts are you? I've got one that's never been used, complete with jack and wheel-brace. Maybe a deal could be done - sale or return or something? Maybe PM me if you'd be interested (I'm in Sandhurst, GU47). :thumbsup:

Excellent!

Thanks for the responses,

I have the gunk tin and compressor for around town and commuting but thought a space save might be a better option to have when miles away from nowhere,

I asked about the E90 as I think there's an alloy space saver available instead of the steel version,

Thanks again for the replies|! :D

Well you live and learn I suppose, but I'm pretty sure a space saver must have been an option. :?

My 06 plate E91 was built in August 2005 and came with run-flats, and I'm sure you wouldn't get a space-saver in the cubby under the boot floor!
