1996 Wagon Spare Tire Pic Please

I picked up a Donut Spare and for the life of me, I can;t make that sucker fit in the side spare tire space.


Can some one please post a pic of the OEM Spare in a Gen3 Wagon?


The spare is a 15" rim and Uni***** Temp Tire.


TIA,


Jim

Wow, went to dealer, NLA. WTD


I advised the spare from a 1996 sedan does not fit even if I take all the air out, the parts guys were in disbelief. LOL.


Oh well, I guess I am putting the old 911 collapsible tire there and get Pops a portable compressor.


Geez.


Going to visit FORDS ONLY in Wilmington, maybe they can shed some light to this weird thing.

Thank you kind sirs!

By chance do you have the size of that Uniroyal tire? I think it is the same as mine. 135/90/15?

BTW, I noticed you are not using the black plastic cone whee guide, maybe a Gen4 thing?

Damn cover is sticking up now :-/
