: Will SRX rims work for a "spare"?

Just curious if anyone has used a SRX wheel tire combo for a spare on the V series or if it's even possible.

Thanks,

Ross

I don't think they'll clear the brake calipers. The Brembo's on the V are much larger than the brakes on the SRX. Just find a scratch-n-dent V wheel on eBay or buy a Mille-Miglia MM-S from TireRack (they used to be $139).

I have my wife's SRX 17" take-offs in storage. I didn't try them on my car based on the following observation when I put the wheel/tire next to the car: the stock tire height would never have fit under the car. I have not taken a tire off the wheel to see if it clears the brake caliper. Maybe someone out there has given it a shot...

If someone finds that it works, then a new Ebay market has just opened up for a wheel no one else wants!

No. Been there tried that. Won't clear the brake caliper.
