Hi to all

Just wondered if you bought the extra kit from your delaer ?

Here in Israel our dealer gave us the spare tyre kit and tools as a gift ,only people found out that they got the ICE kit and not the ev kit.

The problem is not the tyre it self but the rim's pcd.

If any one bought the kit can you check if you got the correct tyre and rim...

The caliper mesurements are in milimeteres

What does PCD mean?

The Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD) is the diameter of the circle which passes through the centre of all the studs, wheel bolts or wheel rim holes.

I think one person posted here that they have been given the wrong wheel, but the dealer was going to correct it. Obviously!

I am picking my car up tomorrow with a spare kit ordered, and checking this issue is high up my list!

Here is my understanding on this subject.
When the ZS EV was first released, MG sold owners the space saver from the ZS ICE car.
This would NOT fit the ZS EV because the it uses a different hole pitch that the ICE version.
A customer discovered this problem and notified his dealer.
MG removed this option from the accessories list.
Then after about two weeks, MG then released the space saver again.
It was discovered that the new ZS EV is fitted with the same hub assemblies as the older HS model.
This is the kit you will require.
It’s about £1in the UK if my memory serves me correctly.
And yes, I have purchased one.
It’s a no brainier really !.

EV probably has hubs from GS/HS due to being heavier/more powerful.

Hence the different PCD.

I got a screw in my tread last week but this was picked up by the TPMS and has since been repaired at Costco for a tenner.

The correct spare wheel kit is the one linked above by Carty.
