Thanks for that simpleR. I see it just sits loose like a piece of luggage, I think I'll stick with the goo. ;)

I'm sticking with goo and Jaguar assistance as well.

There is no point in getting the spare with a convertible as it would appear that the rear wheel doesn't fit in the boot if you get a rear wheel puncture anyway. Front fits, rear is too wide and boot doesn't shut according to comments online.

Likewise if your travelling across Europe in the Coope with spare wheel and a full boot of luggage and then get a puncture you'll be left with a load of luggage and nowhere to put it unless the passenger doesn't mind holding it.

Yeah, I had that situation when I punctured a front tyre on my previous 2010 XKR - I managed to get the wheel in the boot by removing the floor panel, jamming the wheel at an angle in the wheel well and putting the panel on top! I don't think a rear would have fitted, so I carried a used duvet cover to wrap it in if I had to put in on the passenger seat. We really need a following service vehicle! :D

I have the spare wheel in my coupe, will post pictures when I next take cover off car. I can confirm my spare came with the tyre, jacking kit and black snug fitting cover. I can also confirm it is bolt firmly through the board in the boot and does not move around factory fitment. It stays in place 90% of the time unless going on a extend tour then carry foam fill slim kit.

Greetings all,

1st time poster as just put my deposit down on new 2ltr F Type Coupe.

I'm interested in the lightweight spare option fir both long journeys on continent and as a standin while punctures are fixed too etc.

I even looked at fitting Run Flat tires but they wear out fast and you can't drive more than 20mph on them while flat.

I hear good things about HOLTS Tire Weld as a better alternative to the gunk, you can wash it out and repair the tire afterwards.

Anyway my question is...if i order 20" wheels on my F Type will the light weight spare match or is it only good with standard 18" wheels?
