think the reason they are suggesting an 18" wheel is,afaik there isnt a space saver for you model.you also have to think on where you are going to be keeping it?
there wasnt 1 for my smax either so i obtained an 18" wheel exactley the same as my alloys and used to fold a rear seat down and strap it to the back of the middle seat.

I looked into this and was told the space saver wheels cant take the weight of the sharan :(

Sharan weights 1703-1800kg
Galaxy weights 1708-1841kg

Guess which one lists a steel miniwheel as standard across all specs?
