I don't know much about car wheels, anyone think these would make a good emergency spare?

Between 4 of us quite cheap. Stick a nangtang widowmaker on it for £50?

@Comedian My thoughts with this quandary is to try and think spacesaver, that way you have minimum intrusion into luggage space....... like this

@Comedian That’s the boot rear of an Rc350 in the states, apparently the wheel fits an RCF dispite the larger calipers, if I was you I’d order one in from your local Lexus dealer and simply go there to ensure it fits the front wheel with calliper clearance, because if it does the rear will not be an issue.

Offset on them are 25. Make sure they will not onky fit but not rub on your suspension.. or poke out way too much.

I ran the oem ISF space saver on the rear for approx 20 miles once and didn't die.  Won't that fit??

Has anybody actually tried the isF spacer saver on their Rcf/Gsf....... I mean actually tried a I know the discs on the isF are 12 or there about and the Gsf/ Rcf are almost 14 but a definitive answer would be good to know.

Was tried on ClubLexus. A no go I'm afraid.

the IS F spare rim will NOT clear the GS F front brakes. It is not a good option at all unless you want to damage the paint on your calipers while attempting to put on a rim far too small to clear the caliper. Given the calipers on the RC F and the GS F are identical, it's pretty safe to say the IS F spare will NOT fit on the RC F.

A can of expanding foam and a pump, unfortunately....

 

....and a lovely sculpted plastic thing to fill the hole where the spare wheel ought to go!

Spare wheels are legal requirement in some countries so the whole has to be designed to hold one and a proper spare must exist.

This an actual Rcf space saver set up, it is known in the states as the 'Guam ' kit as in that location a space saver is required as it is in some Gulf states where even the Lfa was required to have it, I've e-mailed the appropriate dealer parts department for part numbers and prices which no doubt will be 'prohibitively expensive, but once you get part numbers you can play around on eBay, who knows worth a try AND apparently it fits the Gsf.................IMG_0581.thumb.PNG.42428ac4470005bcfde2044cbdae93db.PNGIMG_0582.thumb.PNG.f68d8e06109dd3ee5443edf7913a3094.PNGIMG_0583.thumb.PNG.f0d1d37f9f6d43888b8e9be1ca95b814.PNG

Would you be so kind to ask your local dealer for a price of replacements and part numbers please?

I'll try but would be a bit difficult as I don't have the car in KSA, will try and show them a pic and see if they can give me the part number

I’ve had a reply back from Lexus in Saudi they cannot supplier part numbers without a chassis number so we are going to need someone out there who has an appropriate vehicle.

My car is at Lexus Bristol today having it’s service, and I’ve spoken with Andy Bevan the parts guy and he contacted Lexus uk and this is there e-mail reply ..........

Hi,
 
I have had a reply back from Lexus, i will paste their reply to my email.
 
"Good afternoon,

Unfortunately there is no approved space saver / spare wheel kit available to order for this vehicle. 

We can only advise on factory fit equipment and approved Accessories. We are unable to advise on conversions or modifications changing the vehicle from its original supplied specification if no approved Accessories are available".
 
I am afraid without their help i am struggling to get a part number for one.
 
The only thing i can suggest is to email a lexus dealer in the middle east to see if they can get a part number, you will probably have to supply a vin number for a Middle Eastern vehicle though.
 
Regards

Thanks for trying @Big Rat

Not going to get into the logic of the situation, it's a waste of internet ink.
