    I've been scouring the forums and have a few unanswered questions.
    I have a new '18 Prius Prime Advanced and therefore no spare tire.
    I believe if I purchase a 17x4T wheel Toyota P/N 42611-47630 and
    a T125/70D 17 tire I'll end up with a compact spare that will fit my car.
    Correct?
    I want to make doubly sure I need a 17" donut even though the car comes
    with 15" tires. If 17" is incorrect I'm back to square one.
    I would like to stow it vertically between the rear passenger seat and
    the front passenger seat back.
    Is there enough space to allow for the thickness of the compact spare?
    I do not expect to have rear passengers except on very rare occasions.
    Any insight appreciated.

    yes, there is enough space, but i don't understand why you think you need a 17" wheel and tire.
