Default I have a Honda Jazz with no spare wheel.?

Just the stupid repair kit ?? As spare wheels are very expensive can I use any 5 stud 17" wheel from a scrap yard to use as a spare with the same tyre size.?? I might never need it. But I have heard horror stories about the repair kit leading to having a new tyre everytime its used !!! due to the gunge inside the tyre after use of the kit.































What other wheel would be compatible to the Honda and be OK ?

As long as the wheel/tyre size is the same you can use any spare. I am assuming however, that as there is no spare with the car (this is becoming more common now - my own car doesn't have one) you will not have a wheel well to keep a spare in so you will end up losing a lot of boot space.

You'd need to make sure it was the exact correct fit for a Honda Jazz, and if the car isn't designed to carry a spare wheel, does it have somewhere to put it if you do get one?

You are dead right about the repair kits buggering up the tyre. If you phone a few car scrap yards aka vehicle dismantlers one at least should have a Jazz on the heap. That's the best way as not only will the wheel be spot on but the tyre will be the right size too.

Spare wheels cost money and take up space. You may well find there is nowhere to put the spare wheel on the Jazz.















Do you want it in the boot. Join the AA or RAC and they will sort out getting a new tyre for you or get you recovered if the kit does not work.

You're SUPPOSED to get a new tyre after using that kit, but they stopped putting real (or even space saver) spare wheels in cars because a puncture is a rare thing. Try owning a motorbike where a flat is REALLY not good, most places refuse to repair bike tyres, and they're way more expensive!































A Jazz wheel from a scrap yard should be cheap enough, but will reduce boot space and increase weight (reducing mpg), but picking a random 17" wheel isn't an option, even if the stud pattern is the same it's entirely likely that the other measurements of the wheel will be wrong.

You need a 4-stud wheel for the Honda Jazz, and wheels from an old 4-stud Honda Civic should fit
