[QUOTE=RKS;24809]Are you sure about the size of the space-saver spare?
The standard tyres are 165 60R 15 which have an overall diameter of 22.8 inches.
A 125/70 on a 15 inch wheel has an overall diameter of 21.9 inches, which is nearly an inch smaller (about 4%).
However, on a 16 inch wheel, a 125/70 tyre would have an overall diameter of 22.9 inches, which is reasonably close to the standard wheel (difference less than 0.5%).[/QUO
See posts 15,16 and 19. The spare is definitely a space saver 15" wheel with a 125/70 tyre fitted.
It is not unusual for spare wheels to be space savers with smaller tyres. Help to keep weight of vehicle lower for emissions, better than a can of crap and a compressor.
