So are you going for space savers or full size normal wheels? I think I should look into this too.

Space Saver Size

Are you sure about the size of the space-saver spare?
The standard tyres are 165 60R 15 which have an overall diameter of 22.8 inches.
A 125/70 on a 15 inch wheel has an overall diameter of 21.9 inches, which is nearly an inch smaller (about 4%).
However, on a 16 inch wheel, a 125/70 tyre would have an overall diameter of 22.9 inches, which is reasonably close to the standard wheel (difference less than 0.5%).

See posts 15,16 and 19. The spare is definitely a space saver 15" wheel with a 125/70 tyre fitted.
It is not unusual for spare wheels to be space savers with smaller tyres. Help to keep weight of vehicle lower for emissions, better than a can of crap and a compressor.

Thanks wellfan. It was because of posts 15 and 16 that I asked the question. I'd checked a few spare wheel specialist websites and the advice appeared to be that overall wheel diameter shouldn't differ by more than 1%. So I was wondering if there might have been a typo error. However, the photo in post 19 (which I couldn't view until I'd joined the forum) is unequivocal. As you say "better than a can of crap and a compressor". Thanks again.

No problem, glad to be of help. I also have a Vauxhall Mokka with 18" wheels, the spare is absolutely tiny. They are really only of use to get you to nearest tyre dealer, or home.
My daughter has a Corsa, had it a week and it got a very tiny nail in one of the tyres. Used the tin of glue, and it just came peeing back out of the hole. Total waste of time, so bought her a spare wheel. Her new Meriva came with a tin of glue, so straight on to eBay and got her an unused Meriva spare. Did the same for my Mokka, and my wife's 108. Rather be prepared for a puncture with a reliable spare than a can of crap.

Have a read through this thread. I got a 15" off a Toyota Yaris, it has same PCD, offset, centre bore, and tyre size as the one fitted to the 108.
