Had a mishap with a wheel 19” 9.5. Had a spare 19” 8.5, so fitted the tyre off the 9.5. My question is I can’t get a replacement straightaway but have a service and mot on Monday. Will it be an issue

Yes it should be an issue, all depends if the MOT tester is paying attention. Even if you get a fail, you may have some time to sort it for the retest if you haven’t run out of time.

Not sure about the new rules that come into force 20/05/18, but the current rules state

- Inspection to reveal:
• Damage
• Distortion
• Cracks
• Distorted bead rims
• How securely attached to the vehicle
• No wheel-nuts or studs missing

There is currently no stipulation for wheel size, only tyre size so theoretically, as long as the wheels on each axle are the same diameter, (I.E 19 inch) there should be no issues
