Default Full size tire in spare tire well

...to let you know, it doesn't fit.

I'll take that back -- it fits, but you can't put that cover back over the wheel.

And how did I find this one out? Flat tire in 18 degree weather. Grrr...

My spare tire is exactly the same as the other four wheels and it fits.

Sorry - didn't get a chance to take a picture...

Diameter wise it fits, but height-wise (or width wise, how you look at it), it seemed to tall for the well.

Just had it fixed up this morning, and the donut's back to its storage. Hopefully I won't have to see it for a while again.

Electrical wire through the wheel well = very bad idea. All you need is a rock or two to fly up and scrape off the insulation for it to ground out on a metal part.

*think* I didn't . . .

I followed Honda's directions and they're in the driver's front panel, above the inner fender. I *DO* have enough wires running under the console to potentially erase a floppy disk though
