What is the Road Hero Space Saver Spare Wheel?

Road Hero is a space saver wheel kit, designed to eliminate the danger of being stranded and to get you home safely! Vehicles manufactured after 2012 are no longer required to provide a spare wheel, due to regulation changes.

Do you have breakdown cover?

In 2016, the AA & RAC attended almost 180,000 breakdowns, due to a flat tyre and a lack of spare wheel.  The Road Hero Space Saver Kit stops the everyday motorist from getting stranded and to ensure they get home safely.

When the product arrived I was very impressed by the way the product was packaged. The wheel itself was in a very stylish bag with a zip and carry handle which concealed the wheel and made it very easy to transport discreetly in the boot of our car. The wheel was also accompanied by a small hold all which contained all the tools necessary for to change a wheel on the side of the road in an emergency. I think it is an excellent concept, we recently purchased a new car which doesn’t come with a spare wheel as an option. The Road Hero Kit gives us great reassurance when we are travelling with our baby that we can change our wheel in the case of a puncture no matter where we are. Without the Road Hero Kit we would have to wait for breakdown assistance which could take a considerable amount of time which could be detrimental in an emergency situation with our baby onboard. Great design. The instructions for the road hero kit are very clear. I feel confident having to use it if and when the time comes. The bags that the kit and the wheel come in are nice and compact and don’t take up too much space in the boot of our car. As so many cars do not have a spare wheel this does eliminate the danger of being stranded and you know you can used and get home safely. It is great peace on mind having the kit in the car for when we might need it, especially now that we have a young baby. The thought of being stranded on the side of the road with a baby waiting on road assistance to come isn’t too appealing. I think that it is a must have in all cars without a spare wheel. It will save on roadside assistance call outs and make them more widely available for people who have broken down with issues out of their control. Luckily I have not had to use it yet but the kit that comes alongside the wheel has everything needed to change the wheel. I am confident that if I have to use it someday that it will be easy to use. I have kept it in my boot at all times since receiving it. The thing I liked most about the product was how compact everything was. Everything you need comes in a handy bag that fits easily in the boot of the car. The wheel is great quality. It is an alloy wheel unlike some of the space saver wheels I have had in the past it seems much better quality. I think that every car should have one. For the peace of mind alone it is worth the money. I would buy this as I don’t think I will ever be without a spare wheel in my car again, especially having a young child now it brings great peace of mind. I have already recommended it to friends and family members that do not have a spare wheel. I think that the road hero kit is an excellent product to have in any car that does not come with a spare wheel. I was very impressed by the quality of the overall product, and think that it is great value for money. The wheel itself is of great quality unlike some of the space saver wheels I have had in the past. It comes in a handy bag that sits nicely into the boot of the car, Unfortunately it did not fit into the tyre well in the car but it was still nice and discrete in the boot. The kit that comes along side it is a great selling point to the overall kit. It has everything you need to assist you to change the wheel safely, including a triangle to put on the road, a head lamp, down to a poncho to wear if it is raining. Having had a new baby recently I have got great reassurance having this in my boot when going on journeys. Cars I have had in the past have come with a spare wheel and I feel that every car should. It is great to think that if I ever need to use the road hero kit I won’t have to wait on the side of the road with a young baby for the road assistance to come. Overall I think that the product is great value for money, You get everything you need in the kit. The reassurance it gave me was totally worth it. I have already been recommending it to friends and family members that do not have a space saver wheel in their car. Stephanie Kavanagh – Layla 3 Months

I was really impressed with the safety kit that came with it. Great concept to give you peace of mind on the road. Pretty standard design, no real comments for that. My husband tested it and went through it all and said he found it easy to understand. It fitted perfectly in our car boot and the additional bag of safety stuff was really useful too. This does give you confidence you will not be stranded and get home safely. I only wish I had one on the other car as that broke down! As this is for the family car I am glad we have this and don’t have to wait for breakdowns. It gives peace of mind that if able to safely you can replace it yourself. The safety kit also helps you feel safer doing so on the side of the road. We have tested this our and very easy to use. Not needed yet but in the boot of the car is we ever do. I really liked the peace of mind this offers. Quality seemed good, the bag the tyre came in and the safety bag had unexpected extras like hi vis, gloves etc. I do agree this is very good value. I would consider buying this for our other car. I would recommend as give you peace of mind and if you enjoy long journeys this is great to have in the boot of the car. This is a realty useful piece of kit for the car. Useful addition to any car for peace of mind, especially when travelling with young children. The safety bag helps you feel safer doing so at the roadside. Instructions easy for husband to understand and he was pleased to have it in his car too. Catherine Egleton – Jack 2 Years

Richard Awarded The Road Hero Kit 4.8/5

Impressed how compact the kit was and had everything you need if have to change flat tyre on the road. Good idea as you have back u if you have flat tyre on the road and can get home safely. Instructions easy to follow. With our baby due soon I was grateful to have this to put in the boot of my wife’s car as she will be travelling about a lot with our new arrival and know she will be safe if has a flat tyre and can get back home safely. I do agree with so many newer cars not having spare tyre this can be a lifesaver. It gives me peace of mind if we have a flat we do not have to wait for breakdown service to arrive and can fit and drive home safely.  Time waiting on the side of the road especially in bad weather is not fun and this takes the worry away as you can fit and drive off.  I did test this out and very easy to use for me and my wife. We have not had to use this yet but safely in the boot for when we need it.  I like the confidence it gives us when travelling that if we have a flat tyre we know we use and drive home safely.  The overall quality and contents of the kit very impressive.  I would consider buying this is need another one in the future. Have already recommended as a good piece of kit. This has come at the ideal time for us as gives me peace of mind when our baby arrives if we have a flat this will get us all home safely.  Yu cannot put a price on safety and this is well worth investing in.  Richard Pearson – Father to Be
