I shall be collecting a 2014 B-Max on Monday. My only disappointment is the absence of a space saver spare wheel, and reliance on the repair cartridge system which would be useless in the event of a shredded tyre! Local Ford dealer has quoted £86 for spare wheel, jack and mounting brackets plus £95 for a tyre. Does anyone know about cheaper suppliers, please? Regards. BP

Thanks for the tyre size details - essential if I buy from an independent source. Good idea re Fiesta too.
Thanks again.

Plenty on eBay, where I got mine. Tryhttp://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SPACE-SAVER-SPARE-WHEEL-TYRE-GENUINE-FORD-B-MAX-2012-2016-JACK-FREE-P-P-/272533463175?hash=item3f7442a087:g:XTMAAOSwA3dYdJ8i

Thanks number6. I've started searching ebay and Amazon and, as you say, there are plenty to be had. Cheers.

Up-date. Have just ordered the necessary bits from three sources on ebay. Total cost is £78.68 (no postage even for the wheel!) making a saving of £157.36 on the local Ford dealerdhip who quoted £184.00 for wheel kit and tyre. Thanks for 'steering' me towards ebay. Regards. B

Grovelling apologies. Savings only £105.32 and not £157.36 as previously reported. Still good!
