Spare tyre query.

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this is the wrong section, and I'm sure this has been done to death, but can't find the answer from searching on site. I'm not tracking my car, im with the Rac,(so not overly bothered about flat situation) would obviously keep it in for long journeys.  but am bothered about weight ratio. Is there any way of balancing out any weight problems over back wheels caused by removing spare tyre and tools?    

 

Again apologies if in wrong section.

Well, you could remove the equivalent weight from the front of the car. 

 

But no one does. Ever. Take it out and leave it out, if you’re desperate for the space. Just remember the RAC won’t cover you if you get a puncture and don’t have the spare with you though...

Ah didn't know that about the RAC?! Error, OK so if I put in lightweight pulleys, lightweight flywheel & lightweight battery,would this level out the weight loss from the back?

Do you intend to run around with minimal fuel in the tank as well? 

 

Sorry, but think you are going OTT with the weight saving - OK if you are going on track/racing then fair enough, but road use???

Your car, do what you want. 

 

Go take it to a geometry specialist once you've removed any parts you don't want or need and let them balance the car out for you. Not necessarily about evening out weight at the front with some at the back. Car/suspension will have its own characteristics.
