Renault Espace - Wheels and Tyres - Spare Wheel
Hi all, I am very Glad to be still here today after one of the rear tyres on my Espace decided to have a rapid deflate and then depart from the rim ( at 35 mph! ) and all within 50 metres very scary
I can tell you. However that is not the reason I am writing this. When I came to get my spare wheel out from under the rear floor ( space saver ) although it was inflated , what emerged was this rust encrusted mass.
The AA man was not impressed and pointed out the depth of corrosion had rendered the wheel unsafe to use . My original wheel was taken and fitted with a new tyre so we could continue our journey. The AA man told me that this was not the first espace spare wheel he had seen in this condition , so if you have an espace or any other renault with the spare mounted under the floor GET IT OUT AND CHECK IT!
