I should of included all the pictures at once, so here is the picture with the full size 20" Fortera in the spare tire well with the two trays, closed and latched. My only explanation is that other 20 inch brand tires with similar, maybe not exact sizes, just won't fit. But a stock 20" x 8" Fortera fits. The other pictures are a side by side comparison of the stock 18" Michelin with a 1000 miles on it next to a new 20" Fortera.
