Should I buy a spare wheel? It's optional.

As you suggested, I tested the Kia Venga as a replacement for our Signum. Thank you for that advice - I have now placed an order for a Venga 3 1.6 petrol manual. No spare tyre is supplied. Do you recommend buying one? If so where from? There may be a spare wheel kit available from the dealer for £250.

Yes, I'd want one. £250 is a bit stiff. He may be prepared to come dowen a bit from that.
