Default Vredestein Space Master

I have punctured my Vredestein Space Master in my SLK R171. Problem is that no one will sell me a spare tyre in Australia - All tyre places have told me to go back to Mercedes. Mercedes here in Australia want $1600 AUD for the tyre with rim, they will not sell the tyre by itself. I have tried a few places on ebay as well.

Does anyone know where to get or is anyone willing to their 17" Space Master - to my knowledge the tyre is a VREDESTEIN 145 - 70 - 17 92P.

Nope, tried that - in Australia, there are two places who stock their tyres. One place only stocks vintage, the other place stocks bicycle tyres. Neither will import the space master for me

Ram, have a look in your boot - you might have one (it's the standard MB space saver spare).

Guys, I found what I believe to be a viable solution. I got a new space saver delivered for under $250 USD, ~300 AUD from eBay UK. Space savers there are in the range of 35-90 pounds. I couldn't find delivery for myself for under 200 pounds but one of the sellers got me delivery to Australia for 110 pounds, I actually didn't believe him but sure enough, it came in four days via FedEx.

If anyone is interested for shipping purposes, the dimensions were 45 x 45 x 13.5 (LxWxH) cms and came in at under 20Kgs.
