    Has anyone used a Corolla temporary spare on a Prius Prime? I'm told they are interchangeable.

    You have one available?

    If you're just hunting, either 3rd or 4th gen Prius spare tire rims will work. The 3rd gen is a 16", and 4th gen a 17".

    My 2 cents, the (3rd gen) 16" with it's spec'd tire* is preferable, simply because the tire OD is closer to stock 195/65R15. The (4th gen) 17" with it's tire, is somewhat more undersized.

    Some links:

    2016 Prius
    2010 Prius
    2008 Corolla

    * See owners manuals for the various gens, to get the tire spec. You can download pdf's from Toyota Tech Info.)
