Hi everyone,
Does anyone know where I can buy a spare wheel (13 inch steel wheel) from for my
2013 (63 plate) Chevrolet Spark 1.0 LS 5 door Hatchback (non air conditioned).
The tyre size on all the tyres are: 155/80/R13 79T
I currently have the tyre puncture kit (sealant) but want a spare tyre in case of a puncture.
Many thanks in advance.

Hi mdb,
Thanks for your reply.
In the boot under the cardboard cover there is a polystyrene molded circle with nothing in it.  On top of  this there is a further polystyrene square with the sealant, compressor, towing eye and screwdriver in their respective compartments.
I have got a photograph of the area but don't know how to load it on to this reply.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Kind Regards
Buster

Buster, there are wheels by the hundreds on eBay and other sites.  
What you need to remember is that sellers usually only list the vehicle the wheel came off of, forgetting that will suit other vehicles as well.
The Spark should have studs at 4 x 100 with 56.6 centre bore and 45 offset   (all in mm)

Providing you look for a wheel that will fit you can then mount suitable tyre.

Bit more info now I've got time. 

Using the website info above you'll find that the wheels on Corsa C, The Vectra A & Vectra B have a 49mm offset (4mm more than you need) but you cant go below 45.
The wheels on Audi A2 and Seat Ibiza might suit also because they have 4 x 100 studs with just a fractionally larger centre bore of 57.1 (+0.7mm) 

You can also consider a 4 x 100 wheel with 155/70/14 tyre because this is within 2.8 mm of original ride height.  Or, 4 x 100 wheel with tyre 125/80/15 because this is within 1.4mm of original ride height; making sure the offset & bore are suitable of course .

Use this web link to cross reference sizes :-

Good luck with your search.
