Road Hero Spare Wheel Kits

Introducing Road Hero, a space-saver spare wheel and tyre kit for a Audi RS3 (8V) (2.5TFSi) (from 2015 to 2020), complete with everything you need for complete peace-of-mind when you're on the road.

More and more manufacturers are supplying vehicles with repair kits instead of a proper spare wheel and tyre. They say that this is because it saves on weight, but the reality is that it's just another way for them to cut costs. Many drivers would prefer a spare wheel and tyre to get them home safely - that's where Road Hero comes in!

Your Road Hero kit includes a space-saver wheel and tyre, jack, wheel brace, storage bags and more. Nuts, bolts and spigot rings are also supplied where required. Everything supplied with the Road Hero Space Saver Wheel and Tyre Kit can be conveniently stowed away inside the provided storage bags. All Road Hero kits come with a 2 year structural warranty.

Will this definitely fit my car?

Diagram showing that the overall wheel and tyre diameter matches the vehicle regardless of the rim size

This spare wheel kit has been designed specifically to fit your car. Several factors are taken into consideration including wheel size, tyre size, stud pattern, brake caliper clearance and load rating.

Please note that the size of the spare wheel itself may be different to the size of the wheels that are on your vehicle. This is not important - the crucial measurement is the combined diameter of the wheel and tyre, as shown in the diagram. We call this the "rolling radius", and it has to be within 10% of the size of your original wheels and tyres.

This Road Hero Spare Wheel and Tyre has been developed to fit your vehicle. As long as you have selected the correct vehicle you can rest assured that it will fit. If you're not sure which kit is suitable for your vehicle, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help.


Will this Road Hero fit in the wheel well in my boot?

Most vehicles have a wheel well in the boot for storing a spare wheel. More often than not the Road Hero can be stored in this wheel well. However, as many cars are now supplied with a repair kit instead of a spare wheel and tyre, the space available can be minimal.

We do not guarantee that your Road Hero Spare Wheel and Tyre Kit will fit in your car's spare wheel well, so if you are planning on storing it there please have a quick measure up first.

The dimensions for this Road Hero Spare Wheel and Tyre Kit are as follows:

  • Diameter: 658mm
  • Depth: 140mm

Please note that all Road Hero kits are supplied in a sturdy, zip-up cover so that they can be stored neatly and conveniently wherever you choose.

My car has wheels of a different diameter to the recommended Road Hero. Is this correct?

Yes, the Road Hero listed will be correct for your vehicle. The wheel will be the correct fitment for your car and the tyre will be of the correct profile to ensure the diameter of the whole assembly is correct. This diameter needs to be within 10% of the original diameter. All the Road Hero applications are within this tolerance and the majority are within 2%.


Will the Road Hero fit into the wheel well in the boot of my car?

Road Hero is guaranteed to fit the vehicle, but the size of wheel wells can differ; we therefore recommend that customers measure the available space. Road Hero dimensions are published for each application.


Does Road Hero come with new nuts or bolts? If so, do I need to use these to fit it to my car?

Yes, Road Hero is supplied with new nuts or bolts, whichever is appropriate. These do need to be used with Road Hero. The original equipment bolts are not suitable.


Why is the Road Hero wheel manufactured in aluminum? Most spare wheels seem to be steel.

Aluminum wheels are lighter and can be manufactured to create additional clearance, that ensures modern brake calipers can be accommodated. Many steel wheels do not have the correct clearance.


How long will it take to deliver my Road Hero?

Road Hero kits are a stock item and are delivered by DHL on a next day service.


Can I collect my Road Hero from your premises?

All Road Hero stock is held in a secure warehouse; there is no facility to collect them unfortunately.


Should I test fit my Road Hero when I receive it?

It is a good idea to test fit your new Road Hero. Better to familiarise yourself with the product before having to use it on the side of the road.


Will the jack be suitable for my car?

Yes, it is a 2 tonne jack and is suitable. Certain applications (for example Tesla) are supplied with a different, vehicle-specific jack.


There seems to be an extra ‘cover’ supplied for the wheel and tyre. What is this for?

This is to put the car’s wheel and tyre into in the event of a puncture. Often these are dirty. The cover supplied stops you from having to make a mess in your boot.


What is the cost of postage and packaging?

There in no charge for delivering your Road Hero within mainland UK. For other areas please check the Delivery Information section.


Can you ship Road Hero overseas?

Yes we can. Please email us for a quote.


Will my Road Hero arrive in one box?

No, the wheel and tyre is in one parcel and the accessories in another. Occasionally the carrier delivers these separately so don’t worry if you only receive one of the items at first. The other will arrive.


Can you supply a fixing to bolt the spare wheel into the wheel well?

Road Hero does not offer this option. If you feel it is necessary this item should be available from the relevant new car dealership.


What is the weight of the Road Hero kit?

The wheel and tyre weighs approximately 12kg for the 15" version, 15kg for the 17" version, and 18kg for the 18" version. The accessory kit weighs approximately 5kg.


Do Road Hero kits come with a warranty?

All Road Hero kits come with a 2 year structural warranty.


What are the dimensions of the jack's head?

The jack's swivel head is 50x30mm, and 20mm high.


What are the dimensions of the accessory kit?

The accessory kit, which includes the jack, brace, and other parts, comes in a zip up bag which measures 510x270x160mm (LxWxH).
