[Vwdiesel] 14" wheels on a Quantum

Measured the spare wheel.
Stud holes are indeed on about 108 or 110 mm diameter.
The hub hole is 2 1/2 " compared with standard 2 1/4"... does this mean
front and back pads are also different to all my other 'Q's? Gawd how I hate
all these modern mods (;oD
This spare seems to be the same style as the ones on the car but it is black
whilst the others are 'silver' This spare also seems to have a little 'Ford'
emblem on them but I could be wrong as it was dark when I checked it out
Ebay has erased the sale so I can't find the PO! ... Ah unless Paypal has it

>>I would suspect your spare is not a VW spec part. Honda? BMW? Even then,
>>they all had 4x100 pattern at the time but were not "hubcentric" meaning
