My Sorento had a full size spare on an OEM alloy with identical tyre too. It even sat underneath the car and could be winched down without having to unload the boot. My worst nightmare when on a journey with a packed car.
My Citroen XM had the winch system. You needed to get to the rear of the boot to find the nut head but this could be done without emptying the boot so long as the spanner was’nt buried.
Could be a bit dirty but better than getting a flat at the very top of Shap, at night in driving rain driving a Marina with a full boot. Lucky for me, a police landrover pulled on the hard shoulder behind me so I could use his headlights. He was not daft enough to get out and help.
