4drive spare/spacesaver wheel

Post by Carsmarco252 » Tue Feb 23, 2021 11:51 am

Just bought a 2017 4drive ateca. No spare wheel. Apparently these can be purchased. Seat have quoted me 330.00 and have said I will lose boot space.
Is this normal price or can they be purchased elsewhere, also how much space will I be losing. Many thanks.

Ebay do this one for a 18inch one which mine is. Was thinking of buying this as i like you bought a 2018 4drive Ateca with no spare. But the garage did make sure that i had the gunk to repair, they also gave me a jack and a wheelbrace that fitted. They are not a Seat main dealer. Just not sure if i want to lose that amount of space. Had old car 7 years with space saver which never got used.

One thing to note with the "Tyre Repair Kits". They DONT repair the tyre, they temprarily seal a leak. And they make the tyre unrepairable, so it's scrap after you use the gunk. Plus any significant damage - I split the sidewall on a misaligned kerb sett - and they're useless anyway. They are a con, they're used to reduce weight to save the off gramme/km emissions. Regardless of the loss of boot space, I always carry a spacesaver spare. YMMV.

I have a 4drive with spare wheel sourced from ebay. Fits in the lower part of the boot with the other paraphernalia around it, jack, hi viz, first aid kit etc. To be honest I don't feel the loss of space in the boot.

I can fit a 19" spacesaver into my wheel well. There are plenty for sale on EBay. I noticed more for sale under Audi than Seat and paid £52.00 delivered for an unused one with a Continental tyre fitted.
