Road hero

Post by penport » Sat May 23, 2020 9:51 am

Has anyone got one of these https://www.road-hero.co.uk/ space saver spare wheel kits?

The first I've seen that claim to fit a 2015 Macan.

Just wondering whether it will fit in the space beneath the boot floor?

Thanks

Hi,
Yes have this myself, neat package, it fits ok it is a little higher and lifts the cover a tad but it really is not noticeable,
Good luck.

Damn just too late for me. First journey over 25 miles for me in two months and hit a pot hole, immediate front tyre deflation :(

I bought a proper collapsible Cayenne spare and jack of eBay. No underfloor space but as I intend touring a lot more I'll just lob it in the boot and sacrifice the room for the sake of peace of mind. I had looked at the spare kit you mention which seem a reasonable option but as hey don't seem to have a variant for my car not an option. I am surprised that the non deflated wheel fits below the floor compartment in a Macan as from memory the deflated optional Porsche spare that I had in mine was a very neat fit.

From Honest John's column in the Telegraph on 22 May:

"Any spare wheel must be firmly bolted down because in the event of a heavy collision it can become lethal to the occupants of the car."

It was HJ's article that suggested Road Hero to me in the first place - he's always good value and of course gives the Macan five stars out of five 8-)
