I had a deflation in my other car before I bought the espace ( at 70 on the motorway ) it behaved very well considering but the spare was under the luggage so I had to empty the car on the hard shoulder to swap tyres. I think the espace mounting is much better. As a precaution I checked the spare on the espace and found surface rust around the bolt holes and on the back face where it mounts . A good clean with a wire brush and a dose of waxoyl was applied to keep it at bay. When i fitted it back I made sure the valve was accessable from below so the tyre pressure can be checked also the rim has drain hole to prevent water from being trapped. I don't have a hand book for it so I have no idea if there is a problem putting the wheel this way up but i haven't had any problems yet. any comments? Cheers
