RoadHero Space Saver Spare Wheel Kit, MX5 Mk3/3.5/3.75

SKU: SI7847

No spare wheel? Did the car only come with a compressor and a bottle of slime? Well, you need a Hero!


Wheelwright have teamed up with one of Europe’s leading Space Saver steel wheel manufacturers to deliver the most comprehensive space saver wheel kit on the market, featuring a 17" space saver wheel fitted with a 125/80/17 tyre, 5 wheel nuts, jack, wheel brace, warning triangle, kneeling mat, gloves, hi-vis jacket, head torch and rain poncho, all packaged in a simple and tidy bag.

The RoadHero Space Saver Wheel Kit solves a genuine problem – and the demand is high. For many years, Wheelwright have delivered a steel wheel programme, featuring full-size steel wheels for over 95% of the car park, manufactured by Alcar Stahlrad in Germany. However, with wheel-wells getting smaller; and manufacturers opting to save weight by only supplying cars with tyre-slime rather than any form of spare wheel, the need is great. Tyre Slime is one solution, which many are happy to use, but more people demand a genuine wheel replacement to get them home safely. This is where RoadHero comes in.

Fits all Mk3, 3.5 & 3.75 models, 2005>2015. Please Note: This will NOT fit in the boot of the retractable hardtop model.

Please Note: These are tempory "get you home" wheels and are not suitable for prolonged use or high speeds. Every effort should be made to get the original tyre repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

Hi wheel arrived day after ordering excellent service as stated by other reviews had to deflate to make it fit in boot but that’s not a problem for the peice of mind you get (recently had puncture on Jazz which I also had a space saver for and glad I did)comes with jack and tools all in the wheel cover so you don’t have a bare wheel in the boot thank you for your excellent service

It was delivered the day after ordering, just what is needed for my piece of mind and reducing the shopping bill due to limiting boot space! Came with zip cover and a jack with 2 part handle and wheel nut spanner. I was advised to let the air out to get the wheel in the boot, and this was needed, So I must remember to check that the compressor supplied with the car is working. I am pleased with the service received and the wheel kit, thanks.

Been researching a spare for quite a while & the RoadHero Space Saver is the best & only accredited option when you consider your wheel size & the rolling circumference has to be same as your road wheels so as not to upset the ABS / traction control etc. After taking less than 24hrs from initial order to delivery - after a small amount of pushing and easing it fitted straight in the boot (without supplied cover) & without need to deflate the tyre - 2011 Mk3.5 1,8 Miyako with fabric roof. The spare also sits reasonably flat to the floor & takes surprisingly little space as its a true skinny spare- overall very impressed & great peace of mind if ever needed. Mazda should supply these or similar as standard - well done MX5parts!

Fits both front and rear of my 2009 sports tech (retractable roof) but too big to go in boot.I let out a few psi and it goes in with a shove towards right hand side of boot.Mazda compressor pumps it up quickly.

Very good quality wheel and tyre, I have the retractable hard top and to fit the boot I deflated it rather than remove any trim.

This is a class product and very good value for money. I bought it for peace of mind going on a long tour but only noticed after ordering that it said in the description that it does Not fit in the retractable hard top nc.Yippee!!! It does fit if you remove the trim panel that covers the locking mech, just have to be careful of the plugs and wires.

Excellent bit of top quality kit, totally recommended. The jack and tools fit into the purpose made fittings within the locker at the r/h side of the cars boot, neat! The wheel fits into the boot on the r/h side, front edge in first, then a bloody good downwards shove to get the rearmost edge of the tyre in. Easy once you have done it once. Jack and wheelbrace are also top quality. Worth the money and far cheaper than getting a tow off a motorway! Ten stars!

Delivery Information - MX5 Parts

We understand that its really important for you to receive your goods in a timely fashion and for a competitive price. To ensure that we can deliver this we have developed a strategic partnership with both the Royal Mail and our courier partner, Think Worldwide.

At the present time, we only offer one delivery option ‘our carrier’. We will dispatch your goods with the most suitable carrier, for main land UK deliveries this is normally Royal Mail 1st class for packages weighing under 2kg and Think Worldwide for those that are over.

Our delivery charges are based on the weight of the consignment and the destination address. For UK mainland deliveries they start at £2.95 for a package weighing under 200g and rise to a MAXIMUM of £9.95 for a package weighing 2kg or over (EXCEPT very large bulky items that have an additional shipping surcharge added). The exact delivery cost will be clearly displayed at checkout.

Delivery times are estimated at 1-3 working days by Royal Mail, and 1-2 working days by Think Worldwide for mainland UK addresses. If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday, we will dispatch the same day. If you order after 3pm, we will try to dispatch the same day, but if we cant it will be the next working day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be dispatched Monday. Items dispatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be dispatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t dispatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised dispatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note, shipping times are an estimate, and can not be guaranteed. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

Please send it somewhere it can be reliably signed for, like your place of work, a neighbour, or perhaps your grans. We can (but we don’t like to) ask the courier to leave your parcel without a signature. If we do this, it will be YOUR responsibility if the parcel is lost or damaged. If you want it left, you need to give us your express instructions in the ‘additional information’ box at the end of the checkout process. It would be helpful if you could also indicate exactly where the package should be left.

If you need to change your delivery address, for any packages that have been dispatched with Think Worldwide, there will be an additional charge of £9.95 if the package has already been dispatched.

Please remember, even with Royal Mail deliveries, that any items which are too large to fit through your letter box will need someone to be available to receive the delivery.

Our Guarantee - MX5 Parts

We guarantee that you’ll be satisfied with mx5parts!

We are an independant, family company, run by a dedicated team. We aim to be the kind of company that we’d like to deal with if we were you. You have our absolute commitment as fellow MX-5 owners, car nuts, internet users and hard-working people that you’ll be satisfied with mx5parts. If you’re not, let us know and we’ll sort it out!

We guarantee “always fair prices”

MX5parts maintains an everyday savings pricing policy. We watch other retailers closely and maintain competitive pricing. The internet being the beast it is means that any Tom, Dick or Henrietta can set up a website in their back room and charge bargain basement/off the back of a lorry (guv) prices. Often they will have no stock, no returns policy, questionable security, no guarantees and of course poor customer service. MX5parts strives to be open and honest, so we will never inflate our prices to set up an artificial ‘sale’ (a common – and illegal – retail practice).

It is inevitable in an open market like the internet that there will be some individuals selling some items cheaper than we do, and some selling them for more than we do, just as in the high street. We take great pride in offering a fast, efficient, friendly and secure shopping experience, with great products at fair prices. We encourage our customers to shop around, but are very pleased to welcome them back again and again.

We guarantee to despatch your order when we say we will

If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday and we have your items in stock , we’ll despatch the same day . If you order after 3pm, we’ll still try to despatch that day but, if we can’t, we’ll despatch the following day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be despatched Monday. Items despatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be despatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t despatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised despatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

We guarantee to replace any goods which aren’t suitable

We guarantee to accept back any goods that you do not want, are not suitable, have changed your mind about, infact, for ANY reason, provided the goods reach us within 30 days of dispatch from us, in their original condition and packaging. Please tell us why you are returning the items, just for our records. The original purchase price of the goods will be refunded on to the card that was used for their purchase. Sorry, but we can not refund the carriage costs.

We guarantee full warranty support on all items

Just contact us if you have a warranty problem. All goods supplied by mx5parts are from official sources and are covered by the normal manufacturers warranty.

We guarantee that we will only charge your credit/switch card when your goods are dispatched

This is your right under UK law and, if we do anything else, it’s illegal!

(Please note: This doesn’t apply however if you have chosen to pay via PayPal. Due to the way PayPal works, you are effectively sending the money to us rather than us asking for it so in this instance we will have received payment at the time the order was placed and not when it is ready for dispatch).

We guarantee that we won’t pass your email details on to anyone else

Absolutely not. All your details are treated as strictly confidential. We’re internet users, too, and we know how annoying unsolicited email can be. We wouldn’t risk annoying you by being the cause of it.
