    Full size spare wheel

    Hi everyone,

    I have a full size spare wheel with same alloy wheels in the boot. I brought the back foam surround from Mazda. However, we all know the tyre well is not deep enough and therefore pushes the boot floor up with around ~44mm gap.

    To those who have got full size spare tyres, how did you fill the gap in order to have it level so things dont roll everywhere.

    Thanks

    Not much you can do on this unless you swap with narrower spare tire/wheel such as 185/80R17 99M.

    Go the Home depot and get a section of round pipe insulation foam. I found it flexible enough to bend around a tire. Ed
