    As above, fleabay MERCEDES SPACE SAVER SPARE WHEEL ......BRAND NEW PART | eBay This one would work along with 225/40/18s but you need to check the circumference of your current tyres to make sure it is nearly the same otherwise your car will give you errors about the braking system etc
    Just remember it wont fit in the wheel well in your boot (I dont think) and you will also need a jack, wheel brace and the right length wheel bolts!
    I'm getting rid of the run flats to but getting a can of Slime Quick Spair. I am also on the look out for a full size spare to keep in the garage.

    The link I sent above is the space saver! The tyre on it is 125/90/16
    I enquired about it and the guy sent me the dimensions which are [FONT=&quot]" 620mm x 130mm and the bolt fitments are compatable"
    I measured my boot and whilst its 130mm deep (just about) the layout of it would prohibit the wheel from sitting down flat in it. (see pic)
    Maybe your boot is different?

    The Slime Quick Spair (gunk) I have mentioned can be washed out with water. SLIME ? Worldwide Leader in Tire Care ? Repairing a flat tire? Slime Tire & Tube Sealant » Catalog » Catalog Products » Quick Spair Its not the same as the other gunks so there's no reason why a puncture should not be able to be fixed if its in the tread pattern.
    Thats why I'm opting for the full size spare in the garage. Use the Slime to re-inflate and plug hole then get home, change wheel for full size spare and take flat wheel to tyre shop. (thats the theory anyway!! lol)
