Here, as requested, are a couple of pictures of my modification to fit an 18" spacesaver into the wheel well of a 2019 HR-V Sport.

Re: 2019 HR-V Sport Space Saver spare wheel

Can anyone tell me how to upload .JPG picture files to this forum? Sorry if I'm being stupid but I can't work it out.

Re: 2019 HR-V Sport Space Saver spare wheel

Hi Needle, it gets worser and worser. Pages 571-74 in my owner’s manual only deals with replacing the tyres and rotating them round the car. Pages 608-615 deal with changing a punctured tyre. It is quite difficult to follow because it covers different versions of HR-V but it would seem to say that p...

Re: 2019 HR-V Sport Space Saver spare wheel

Hi, I bought my 2019 HR-V Sport as an ex-demonstrator with 3000 miles on the clock from my local, trusted, Honda dealer. It was, in fact, the boss's car which was also used for (a few) demonstration purposes. It was registered in early 2019 and I've no reason to doubt that it is a genuine 2019 model...

Re: 2019 HR-V Sport Space Saver spare wheel

Sorted! It took me a little longer than Jazzandjag’s 2 hours but I had to wait for my wheel to arrive and, me being me, I decided to modify Jazzandjag’s design to include a cross-piece at the rear ends of the side bearers. It didn’t take long to install the woodwork and I used pieces of tube as spac...

Re: 2019 HR-V Sport Space Saver spare wheel

I'm now waiting for my new 18" Space Saver wheel kit arriving (135/80R18 tyre plus jack and wheel wrench). In the meantime I've installed a couple of 1" thick spacers, one on either side of the boot under the floor. The bolts holding down the tiedown loops are 15mm by Japanese M6 and I've replaced t...

Re: 2019 HR-V Sport Space Saver spare wheel

Thanks Jazzandjag. I had my HR-V into my friendly Honda garage to-day for a service and asked for their thoughts. When I picked the car up I found that they'd tried every Space Saver rim/tyre combination they could find and the best they could come up with was 1" higher than the floor of the boot. I...

2019 HR-V Sport Space Saver spare wheel

Does anyone know if it is possible to fit a Space Saver (18") spare into the wheel well of a 2019 HR-V Sport? My own measurements suggest that a 135/80R18 tyre as fitted to the spare supplied by 'Tyremen' (https://www.tyremen.co.uk/) should fit although the width of the tread might be a problem rath...

Re: Override automatic handbrake?

Thanks folks! Being an old foggie I'm not used to these new fangled things - it took me a while to get used to not having a hand-brake lever and the brake hold but I like them now. When you told me it was possible to park without the brake coming on I did a bit, more determined, experimentation and ...
