Welcome to the '2' club.

I think you can only get a 15" space saver.  Don't forget that the 16" wheel is a low profile, which I believe is approx., the same overall dia. as the 15" wheel.

Are you now saying that the latest '2' doe's not come with a spare wheel!!

I noticed a while back that the 2 no longer has a spare.  The 13 reg that I had as a courtesy car in February just had the can of glue  >:(  If I get another 2 to replace my current one I will either insist on getting a space saver (even if I pay for it) or I'll take mine with me!!!  It is just a penny pinching measure by manufacturers disguised as a weight saving measure.

Standard spare wheel will not fit in the well which was designed for a space saver only. Only the space saver supplied up to 2012 will fit.
Another reason why I got a fiesta this time as it takes a standard spare wheel in the well.

It may fit, but on most makes of cars the bolts/nuts on the wheel are different between steel and alloy wheels, it is worth checking!
