Try your local scrapyard and ask for a 13inch vauxhall NOVA or ASTRA rim. Theyll be around 10-20 or so with a decent treaded tyre. Way cheaper than the dealer. I got four Nova rims for 40 from my local scrappy that i mounted winter tyres on for my partners spark. Perfect fit. ANY old 13inch Vauxhall rim will do as a spare.

I got a questionare through and my main complaint was the lack of a spare wheel. Looks like I will have to buy one plus a tyre, jack and wheel brace. It sticks at the back of your mind that there is no spare. The foam kit is pants.

Looks like you can, but it's not cheap...

Spare wheel sorted

No need to put up with the foam kit, as others have said, you can ditch it and get a second hand Nova 13" wheel in the boot - see my link.
