Hi nospam, Thanks for your detailed comments/report. I have already had all these thoughts trying to work out best way to replace original 17"wheels and RF,s with Chrome 18"wheels and radials. My RF,s after 1 year, 15,000 Km,s still look new. Once I get others will probably put original in back with wheel well facing up to put stuff in wheel hole. Have thought about standing up but 7.5"wide, maybe not. My previous car I swapped originals and chromes around - eg. Originals-Service and Chromes-Trips. A small sacrifice to pay if you want your car looking good. I intended to wear originals out but was fortunate enough after advertising to sell them. It comes down to our individual situations. I would eventually like to get Spacesaver, unfortunately not US$235 where I am but AUD$700.
