the wheels fits onto the bolts with a 5mm space to the hub and 1mm gap between the brake caliper/rotor.

As the standard sports rims are 4 identical 18" rims, I would have expected that if the spare fit perfectly on the bolts/hub on the rear.....the only issue on the front should have been clearance for the caliper/rotor. The fit of the bolts/hub should be the same as the rear.

the second one... "the wheels fits onto the bolts with a 5mm space to the hub and 1mm gap between the brake caliper/rotor". Basically, after i screwed-in 4 out of 5 screws, i was able to put a finger through the 5th hole and feel the hub on one side and the wheel on the other one. I'll have to do the whole operation again today because on the rear i didn't remember seeing such a gap. But what do I know, maybe I'm getting demented. I'll take pics this time.
