I am looking into getting a full sized spare rim/wheel for my 2012 VW Passat SEL. Currently it has 215/55R17 tires on it, with alloy rims and 5 lugs on it to secure it. The local shops offered me metal rim with unknown brand tire for a set price (both new). But I am looking around on Craigslist for a cheaper option.
I found a Nisan rim with 215/55ZR17 - will it work? (ZR vs Will the different rim type will be an issue?
Also, is the lug set orientation is different between those two? How Can I learn more (for the future's sake) how to find the right lug orientation for the wheels?
