Default 2014 Scion 18" as spare tire?

Will a full 18" wheel fit in the spare tire compartment in the trunk?

So you haven't even purchased the car yet, and your question about it is if an 18" wheel will fit in the spare tire compartment? That's odd enough as it is. Call the dealership or go to a dealership with a tape measure. Why the infatuation with the spare tire compartment? You stuffin' dead squirrels in there?

Thanks Zerosky. That saves me some money. One of my past cars, a Dodge Shadow, came with 5 wheels with rims - one was the spare and we included it in the tire rotation so when we got a flat it wasn't a big deal. (No "drive slower than 55 for less than 50 miles") thing - it was an actual wheel just like the rest of them. While I could still carry around a full tire,(after buying it separately at $500 for the rim + the tire cost) it would take up too much room in the trunk to sit on top of the existing mini spare so I won't worry about it.

Yeah I was wondering the same thing when I bought mine and was sad to see the small donut. I was looking at gti too and they come with full size spare. Even on a donut I got over 55 haha. I'll measure once home to see if it's possible but when I looked it really didn't seem likely

I measured today at the dealership. If you rip out the plastic in the trunk area then it would work. Otherwise, the tire would be 1 inch too wide of diameter to fit. So that's a no.

Yeah I was thinking if any other way would work but won't and not really worth it to me to rip it out.
