you'd have to measure it, The spare fits pretty firm in the basket, so if it's the same diameter....maybe.

Bob, I doubt that a "standard" tire will fit underneath. The manual states that the flat tire must be place in the cargo area. The "donut spare tire" is MUCH thinner than the standard wheel and tire. The spare tire basket would probably not close enough to secure the standard wheel/tire.

Bob, before you try this, you better check out the clearance and that front brake caliper. It sits damn close to the stock 17" wheels. Speaking of brake calipers, I like how they stamped "TURBO" on it.
