As the title states. Is it because the wheel itself is a "seconds" wheel, cos the tyre is a "blem" or is it simply because the spar is not the same as the original alloy wheels? :?

Any help appreciated. 8-)

most likely the spare tyre is a 215/55/16. used in the utes and wagons i believe. ba mk2 sedans come with 215/60/16 spare don't know about the others.
your normal tyres are 215/60/16.

Thought that may have been the case. The car is an XR turbo so it had the 17" alloys on it (now has 19s on 8-) ) but tyres are reasonably hard to get here so was going to stick two matching stockies on it for the time being (one being the spare). Just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to have an issue using the spare to get to a major centre to buy new tyres. 8-)

Bridgestone here (The only tyre shop in town) can't deal with 19" tyres; they can only fit up to 18s :( . And the tyres that are on there are kinda sick looking (canvas on one shoulder in one patch) due to a very very ordinary wheel alignment :evil:

Won't be putting them on the rear Blackjack. Unfortunately due to the d***head in Commodores around here, having stockies on the back is an instant defect here at the moment.

you may have to go for a drive,to nearest tyre centre that sells 19 race slicks and get the beast wheel aligned,driving on canvas and steel belts,dirt roads for grip?
