Spare Wheel for 2013 RAV 4 2.2

PostPosted by Deeps » Mon May 08, 2017 7:45 pm

New member question..........can anyone point to the thread re lack of a spare wheel?
I have a 2013 2.2 D4D with a pump and bottle of gunge and want to install at least a Space Saver wheel.
Thanks

That's an old one. Just contact a Toyota dealer.

As far as I know, the spare skinny wheel was introduced with the 2014 models.
Your best bet is a dealer, or this flee bay.

Thanks guys......I have spoken the Toyota dealer and they insist thete is nothing they can do.
I feel ao strongly about this if I cannot get a solution I will get rid of the motor........which is a pity as I really like it.

There are probably cheaper examples, but what's the problem?? The wheel parameters (PCD, offset, etc) across 4.3/4.4 are the same.

There was a lot of this subject Toyota own forum - http://blog.toyota.co.uk/rav4-price-and-specification search for 'spare wheel'.
As Shcm pointed - there are some on this auction site... shame to sell the car just because of that (now that you have it!)

Surely the cost to change the car would far outweigh the cost of buying a full size spare wheel, and a tyre ?

Ironically, my Rav came with a 5th full size alloy/tyre combo, but the missus keeps it in the garage as it takes up too much space !

Get a Jag.... I would....... I can just imagine saying to the wife...... I must bin the Toyota which is a brilliant car cos it ain't got a spare wheel which I could buy of EBay for 80 quid. I might loose a couple or three grand but I've got me arse in me hand :D

Blimey I've just come up with a new plan A....
