Hi, I hope to collect my new Niro 3 by about the middle of next month. The dealer has been told it should be getting it by the 2nd November, but I'll wait and see. I don't know if this the right place to ask
, but have any members used the Road Hero spare wheel kit, and does it fit in the wheel well ok. The dealer says they don't have spare wheels listed, but I like to have one. Are there other wheel kits that you recommend,

Many thanks in advance

Roy

Which version of the Niro are you getting: HEV, PHEV or EV? I ask because if its the PHEV you won't be able to carry a spare wheel, because the traction battery occupies the space under the boot. I'm not sure what arrangements there may be in the HEV and EV, or what options those models have for spare wheels.

Hi, thanks for your interest. It’s the HEV version I have purchased in Runway Red, getting excited

I've got a space saver spare wheel in the boot of my HEV, you have to remove a polystyrene tray for it to fit. It's not specifically a Road Hero, but I would imagine there's little or no difference,
