    Care to elaborate? Sounds to me like it's not a good thing!

    I personally havent read the T&C's but... when i had a flat tyre and called out Green Flag Recovery i had to pay them £25 because i didn't have a spare wheel. But i didn't find this out til i received a letter from them asking for £25!! Cheeky so and so's. I've now got a proper spare wheel in the boot :smile:

    Did you use the same wheel as foxspeed has Emz or you done it a different way?

    I presume / hope the answer to this is 'yes', but is the above wheel tyre still fine for an RS200 with the cup chassis?

    Also, I know the reasons why the jack isn't supplied with the cup chassis equipped Clio, but does anyone know the part code for the standard jack also?

    I do high mileage and would rather cart a spare around in the boot than rely on a couple of tins of tyre repair foam which don't do much in the event of a shredded tyre.

    Personally I would go for a 175/55R17 tyre, closer to the correct rolling circumference, fine on this width of wheel, and a touch narrower too!
