Hi

Can anyone suggest the best place to get replacement tyres and the size needed for this model? Just got a second hand VW UP 2012 Black Edition and it's missing the spare tyre.

Thanks

HI, I am guessing you need a wheel and tyre. A lot of these Ups come without a spare wheel, just an inflator kit. There are however many new Space saver wheels and tyres on EBay for the UP and you will need a jack and spanner kit etc. If you want a proper wheel and tyre you can find them listed second hand there too.

Quite often you see a set of four steel plus tyres on ebay as people upgrade to alloys. That's what I did as it gave me four spares. In my business usually a puncture every 2/3 months.

Thanks for the replies. Can you confirm if the UP boot space has enough room for a proper wheel or just a space saver wheel?

Plenty of room./ I have a full size 17" GTi wheel & stock tyre in my boot.

Any tyre & wheel combination will fit, so long as you don't go above the normal maximum rolling radius of any OEM combination, and it's unlikely that many people would do that.
