Thanks to the pothole puncture epidemic and the fact that up to a third of newer cars don’t have a spare, the AA has come up with a unique solution to help drivers. It has launched the AA ‘Multi-fit’ wheel, the design of which is exclusive to the AA.
It comprises a slim-fit wheel and tyre with an ingenious range of interchangeable hubs and stud sets that will fit up to 90% of cars* that don’t carry a spare, as well as caravans and some trailers.
All AA roadside service patrols carry the bright yellow wheel, which has a speed limit of 50mph. It can be fitted quickly at the roadside by the Patrol.
