Does anyone know of a space saver wheel that would fit onto an ef? I am currently designing a new boot install for my car, and would like to use a bit more of the boot floor to mount the amps without losing the spare, as the car is a daily driver. Any info greatly appreciated.(I was thinking maybe a Toyota wheel might be the best option)

silly
just use a BA/BF one.
I understand that toyota's fit but need the centre hole filed out
Also Magna's are supposed to fit.
I have been thinking of getting one for the gas wagons as the spare wastes a heap of space.
I know someone who got a toyota wheel long before the BA came out for his EA.

They'll sit too far in. But then your speed limited with a space saver so it might all be alright...

It's going to be for emergency use only, but I will double ckeck for brake clearance ect before deciding.

When the space saver is so thin, would it even have an offset?

Yes, some Toyotas such as Rav4, Fagna Magnas and a bunch of Nissans - Skylines, 180sX etc.

Rang Darren yesterday but unfortunatley he does't have any in stock at the moment. They only come in straight gas cars so might be hard to get at a wreckers.

Yes, that's for a Falcon one, but as said there are many other vehicles with the same stud pattern and that so it shouldn't be hard to find one that will fit at a wrecker.
