Hi all,

note that I've bought a recond mazda azela from japan but did not get spare tyre but rather inflator and glue. my wheels are 18 inch 225/45R18. its zetro s4 tyres. I'm trying to find a spare tyre of the same size but in vain. my question is, can I use a lower inch rim and tyre like 15/16 inch with normal tyres for the spare tyre? the car will not bend if ever I put the spare tyre?

you can if the weel fits the brake calipers. this is the same with all cars. spare is not intended for longterm driving ... only for max aprox 100km and only 80km/h.

so you mean that even the wheel size is small, it wont affect the riding. ok. thanks for the info

well, it will affect the riding, since space saver wheels are usually one number smaller and tire is half size thinner, but it is intended only to drive to the nearest repair shop.
