Mercedes-Benz Space Saver spare tire. Vredestein Space Master P195/75-18 .
251 Type spare.
Never used. Requires the compressor to inflate for use. Compressor to run ~ 8 minutes.
This space saver spare was converted for use on a Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG. It may fit other models with the larger brakes. (SL63, SL65, E55 etc.) It came from a 2007 R class R-350.
I used epoxy to put a spacer on the hub side of the spare so as to fit on the larger rotor/caliper of my 2003 SL55 AMG. (see the pics) I also bought longer stud bolts to mount the spare onto either the front or back of my SL55 AMG. I trial fitted it to both the front & rear of the car and it fits perfectly.
It also fits into the spare tire well of the SL55 AMG perfectly. I cut about a ¼ inch semi-circular bit out of the forward cardboard edge of the trunk mat support to be able to lift out this spare from the well. I stored the lug bolts and compressor in the tire. This is on top of the jack & handle.
It works just as if Mercedes should have done it. No more worrying about a flat and using the ‘inflate a tire’ junk.
It is very heavy ( about 50# ) and I would need your zip to compute the shipping charges to you.
I’ll sell it for $200 and you pay shipping. That includes the five longer, correct Mercedes lug bolts. It was a bolt on solution for a spare for my SL55 AMG.
I put this ad on mbworld.org today also.
