Anyone know where in Singapore can buy "half" size temp spare tyres.

Or anyone has one and want to sell? e.g. those who upgrade to full size spare or those who prefer to save weight and get rid of the spare.

 

Am interested in this specific size:

145/90 D16 or

145/90 R16 (which is actually the same size).

 

Nowadays, many new cars don't come with spares.

Am thinking of a half-size spare just in case (esp. for trips to Malaysia).

Is it a space saver spare tire?

 

If $400 from the scrapyard might as well spend on TPMS+portable air pump. Many drivers do not maintain their spare with the correct air pressure. Having a spare not necessarily guarantee anything.


The chosen one will bring balance to the Force...I mean Singapore. Even star wars do not reserve "the chosen one" to a sith lord or a jedi or a wookie.

Just to clarify.

 

I already managed to find my steel rim for the donut spare (and I agree with all of you that it is difficult to find a matching one from other car models - so I ended up buying an OEM one).

 

Now trying to find the rubber tire only (but if existing car owners trying to sell both tire and rim as a set, I can consider).

Size is 145/90 r16 (or 145/90 D16) for the tire.
 

Anybody got lobang or trying to get rid of theirs? (if you are replacing yours with a full size spare, I can buy over your donut spare)

Do you intend to use your spare left at home?

If size is 145/90 r16, would you want to sell?

getting a space saver / donut is a better option BUT

make sure it can fit into your car (best test on both F&R

make the tire is not too OLD (if you are getting the old one  from junkyard or owner) cos those at least 10yrs scrape car

otherwise later you have problem find the donut tires

make sure you have the proper jack / tire wrench to do the job.

your size sound like Nissan QashQai ?

if yes very simple , just go to any tire shop ask for 17inch rim with that tire size or any 17 size as spare can

again make sure they test for you on your car both F & R

also the tools that need to do the job

Thanks! yes its a qashqai 1.2 which does not come with spare wheel... :S

I go up to malaysia about 3 to 4 times a year and having a spare wheel i think would be safer.

I found a shop where some of the other qashqai owners bought new rims and traded in the original. I was quoted $120 for just the rim.

I'll check out others before making the decision.

Thanks once again.

already found the solution, quickly buy the rim and also a tire keep inside car

problem solved [thumbsup]

another is make sure you got the necessary tools 

Do note that your car should equipped with a 12v operate inflator and bottle of gel / chemical is for emergency use 

do carry it with you.
