Whats Up with the Spare Tire Well?

I bought a set of full size steelies to replace one bent wheel and to have a full size spare. Come to find out a stock size wheel and tire doesnt fit in there! That's a bummer. I guess the full size spare will stay in the garage, and get tossed in the trunk if I plan on taking a long trip.

Just me? Lol

I just threw it in the trunk, kept the jack and whatnot in the well.

At one point, I'd had the same thought and realized the same thing. I wonder if a low-profile tire would fit in there? Maybe like a 185/55R15? Wouldn't be quite "full-size" but better than a little donut spare.
