After 10 years of owning a 56 plate xsara Picasso we have recently purchased a 65 plate C4 Picasso exclusive. One of the Anaconda alloys has been kerbed and I have seen a brand new 1 for sale so thought the kerbed one could do as a spare instead of the tyre repair kit. Does anybody know if it will fit in the boot where the pump and puncture kit is or is it only big enough for a space saver wheel?
Thanks in advance.

Too be honest the only way you will find out is to try one of yours, yes s bind to have to take it off an axle or you could just measure one against the wheel well.
On the C3 Picasso the wheel well did take a full size spare are I bought one in place of the slime and pump. I wouldn't be surprised if one didn't fit as some models may have come with full size spare.

Thanks for the reply. As soon as I typed this out I thought about measuring the wheel. Will do that tomorrow if nobody confirms before.

There is only room for a space saver wheel, the standard 17" are too deep, so the floor won't fit. I know because I had a space saver in my 65 C4P.
