Default Need to figure out what spare rim to get........

I recently upgraded from 17's to 18's and will also be putting on the StopTech 14 inch big brake kit in about a week.

I need to figure out what kind of spare (I am more interested in the smaller - space and weight saving rim than a full-size rim) to get. I will however consider a full-size rim if I cannot get a space saver rim/tire

Keeping mind that the size of the calipers in the front will be big, is there any space saver rim/tire I can get? Recommendations please.

I am kinda nervous about driving around without a spare.

most likely you can't find any space saving light way. supra was your best bet but since you got the stoptech 14" the supra spare doesn't fit (my ap racing is the most marginal one already i think)

your only way is to get another RIM that will fit the brakes, maybe those OZ and some relatively cheap rims with some all season tires. have to be at least 18" though

Which OZ rims, Henry? The cheaper the better..............

Hameed, There are a number of threads including this one.

My OZ spare was not cheap and I even picked it up second hand. There are no space saving rims that will clear the brakes.
