re: space saver tire

I seem to remember Car and Driver or some such magazine did such a test, with
fairly good results overall.  Anyone want to run to their library and search
for it?

I also once drove about 450 miles on one at the rear of my old 4000csq; my
passenger insisted I slow down whenever I crept above 70-75, fearing
catastrophic failure.  The tire didn't heat up noticeably, nor show much wear.

Chris Miller, Windham NH, c1j1miller@aol.com, '91 200q with space saver; would
a full size fit in the well?

throw it around a bit?

If not, is anyone game for a try at the next UK track day?  An ur-quattro on 

four motorcycle tyres?
