Default V70 Spare Wheel

Hi

Can anybody help. I have just bought a volvo alloy wheel to have as a 'proper spare wheel' as I don't like the tempary steel one that comes with the car.

The trouble is, it won't seem to fit into the wheel well in the boot, it seems to big now! the wheel well does not seem deep enough.

Has anyone else experienced this?


Thanks very much
Michael

It's made to hold a compact spare. Not much you can do about it

Thats a shame (wish I'd known before I bought the new one though)

Thanks for replying

People have done it but the floor doesn't sit flat, and you still have to remove the foam "bumpers" inside the spare storage well.

Default Mine fit

Just sharing information:
I have a 2004, 2wd, N/A with 16" wheels.
I have a full size spare in my storage well. Needed to remove some / all of the foam blocks and removed the handy strorage tray. My floor does fit flat.

Thanks Dennis

I might remove the foam and give it another try, but mine has the 17" alloys so I guess it will be a sqeeze.

Cheers

Michael
