leahnc has a little shameless behaviour in the past

Just got a flat tire & realized the spare tire is gone from my 1994 Ford Taurus

I need to get the car to the shop for new tires, The Taurus tire size is P205/65 R15

Can I use a spare from our other car (2007 Ford Focus) The spare tire size on the Focus is T125/80 R15 95m

Im clueless about this. We will be driving it straight to the shop about 8 miles away.

Thanks

The Focus only has four lug wheels, doesn't it?

I would just grab a new spare from a junkyard.

Yes, the Focus only has 4 lugs so it won't work on the Taurus (which uses 5 lugs). The center cap on the Focus is deceiving (shows 5 lugs).
