Hi,

I have a 2017 v40 R-Design on 18inch wheels but want to get a spare (spacesaver) wheel.

It is safe to use the 16inch spacesaver that are online for v40 R-Designs when normal wheels are 18"?

Tks
Aidan

as a temp get you to the garage or home, yes they are fine, the overall rolling radius is close to original rim, but much narrower and you cannot drive above 50mph, or for very long.

I have a 2017 T5 and it came with a spacesaver spare tire... I unfortunately had to use it while driving on a highway but worked like a charm, of course under the recommended 50mph/80kmh speed and not for too long. I can verify the size later if you want.
