Had my SF up on a ramp this morning for some work and the steel cable had been clean cut! Spoke to mechanic (not Hyundai) and he explained that right angle cutters are used to do this from 4x4s. The high ground clearance means that filthy crooks can remove a wheel in minutes with the right tools! More common than you think apparently.
Although I'll get the wheel replaced on the insurance I'm seriously considering not carrying this on the car. I'm wondering if it's possible to get a spacesaver for a SF, or just live without it (perhaps always carry tyre sealant if I have a puncture). What do you think?
