Her clubman has run flats & i am not a fan. They are harsh & rough IMHO.
I would prefer rainsports or another suitable tyre.
The space in the boot is too small at 584. The tyre is 637.
So will have to lie in the main boot.
Any recommendations for a space saver or do you just carry a repair kit.
I know lots of cars just have a repair kit but is a spare now seen as a luxury.

Which Clubman is it? I had an official spacesaver in my R55.

You can buy an official MINI space saver spare on eBay. Be aware that on some You'll also need the threaded screw holder and plastic wheel thingy to secure it to the boot floor - under £20 from main dealers I think. Then you'll need the foam insert to fit in the space saver to hold your jack, wrench, wheelcap removal tool. I bought a waterproof wheel cover from Amazon to put the wheel in if I ever had a puncture and stop the interior being messed up.

Thanks for the reply. This has to stay in the boot on a F54. You can spec a space saver on the mini car builder site for £100.
I dont need a £200 fancy alloy just a £100 steel wheel & jack will do.
I hate using Fleabay full of Arthur Daleys. :shoot
I will look to find a web site without a Chinese connection.
She loves the car & i can get a Vulcan bomber airborne before she is ready to set off.
