    Default Spare wheel help?

    Hey
    Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place or if it's a really silly question but, my spare wheel for my Honda EP3 which came with the car only fits on the rear wheels and doesn't fit the fronts because of the brakes. Is this how it's supposed to be? Or have I got the wrong tyre or something?

    Your not supposed to fit space savers to the front. If you get a flat on the front you need to swap one of the rears to it and for the spare at the back.

    Ah right, I figured I'd have to swap them around but wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong! Haha
    Is the only reason I can't fit the space saver to the front so it doesn't interfere with the brakes or is there another reason?
    Thanks

    As said it is designed like that. Personally Charlotte I wouldn't use it. They have a "use by" date. Every single on that came in an EP3 is now out of date. Mine went in the shed as soon as I bought the car and I have a can of the tyre foam stuff and a good breakdown policy but never had to use it.

    Oh really! I didn't know that haha luckily I have only had to use it to drive from one garage down the road to the other!
    Careful not to jinx it about not using the breakdown policy

    Yeah that's true, I guess its good to know that you have it with you just in case! Even if it does just get you home I think that's probably all I'll use it for anyway
