    My Partner is Getting a New Prius Prime XLE. As You Know It Comes With No Spare.
    We Currently have a 2007 and a 2010 Pri's.
    My Question Is will either of our doughnuts fit the new 2021 Prime?
    If Not Where can one be purchased?
    Thanks For Any Help.

    Idk if will fit, easy enough to try.

    Salvage is usually the cheapest option

    I got the spare for our 2019 Prime from a 2015 off of Craigslist :).

    The one time I needed it, it fit and worked;).

    Enjoy the new Prime(y).

    I know Gen3 spare works on PP, so 2010 will work. Not sure about Gen2 (2007).

    Stick with Prius having a spare? Yeah I know...

    My fur goes up, hearing people gearing up for a shiny new purchase, and having to salvage necessities (debatably) from their older model. :mad:

    Rav4 Prime is the only plug-in that comes with a spare I know. Is there any other PHEV or BEV that comes with a spare?

    Hey NYPrius1, make a full size or donut size spare tire be part of your negotiation. Can't hurt, why not try .

    It's an option on the Escape PHEV, and relatively cheap for $110.

    I agree with trying to negotiate a new full size wheel and tire in the deal.
    My 2004, 2005, 2008, 2014 Prii all take the same rims. All take 185/65/R15 tires although the 2014 has 195s.
    You can get Prius rims from a big junkyard for $50 or less, or entire wheels from a more exclusive junkyard for $100 or so. You can get cheap tires from Walmart.com. Not as good as your real tires but enough to get you home and way better than a donut. You can find a cheap place to fit and balance the cheap tires on your cheap rim.
