Hello fellow B-Max owners and has anyone ordered a space-saver wheel, tyre, jack and wheel-brace and if so, how long have you had to wait to have them delivered to your dealer??

I know the car is new-to-the-market, but I would have thought Ford would have had plenty readily available as the majority of drivers do NOT like the waste-of-space/tyre-ruining emergency foam repair kit. I have waited 3 weeks so far and still nothing!!!!!

I can only take it that as Ford had a busy registration month, this is what is causing the delay???

Enjoy your driving!!!!!!

Seems a bit odd as Iam sure it isthe same wheel as used on other Fords. I bought an unusedFocus one off Ebay for £20. But it may be the holding down screw that varies, I modified the one I useEdited by: rogerhume

I decided post delivery to have a steel spare and gave up waiting. I also saw that they cost £200. Decided to build up the spares from EBay recycled from other Ford models. Much cheaper and the screw fixing can be ordered from Allanford (I think) via their EBay site.

As with ModestMillionaire, I ordered a steel wheel with the car, I didn't like the idea of relying on some toothpaste (exaggeration) to hold the air in the tyre when I have a puncture....

i also ordered with car and all came together.

NOTE- you can only use alloy nuts for a very short time with a steel space saver!


You may need steel wheel nuts for more than a few days use. About 30p each from dealer.
I bought them for my steel rims (with winter tyres - god they are good in snow!)
