Now I would have thought a 3000GT GTO space saver would be a rare thing but looking at the web not as rare as I imagined

Picked up a MITSUBISHI 3000GT GTO COMPLETE SPACE SAVER SPARE WHEEL on Ebay and based on previous threads it seems it will be the right one ( not arrived yet) for my 2009 QPV. Any thoughts on the bolts to use or will the standard ones work

thx

Looking at the bolt seats in the picture, they appear to be flat, while the QPV bolts will be conical. If that is the case you will need wheel bolts to suit the wheel.

Standard wheel bolts are too long. DrewF covered this in a thread called QP Spare wheel - solved. https://www.sportsmaserati.com/index.php?threads/qp-spare-wheel-solved.10485/

"Bolts are M14x1.5 thread, 35mm thread length. I bought these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Volkswagen-Wheel-Bolt-All-Sizes-M14-x1-5mm-Thread-/280657327292? as the SB54 35mm units. Very happy with the result."

To fit the wheel into the underfloor storage space I had to let all the air out and wedge the wheel in. I carry the jack and air compressor in the lower space under the floor.
