I'm taking delivery of a T8 soon, and I'd like to get a mini spare to throw in the back for long trips. I understand that the T8 is heavier and not all wheels that fit are approved for it. Can anyone confirm if the T6 mini spare is approved to work with the heavier T8?

Thanks -

Hmmm ... the T8 also has larger breaks - so I wonder if the rim size of the mini spare on the T6 would even work. If you don't get a good answer here - this may be one to ask in the Volvo support forums - its staffed by Volvo and they're pretty good at getting answers to things like this.

Page 457 of the English International edition of the T8's handbook shows how to carry the spare wheel in a special case tied down on top of the folded third row of seats. I don't know if it is full-sized or a mini-spare. The North American T8 handbook repeatedly mentions a temporary spare but those references may just be leftovers from the T6 manual.
