    Spare tire in a mkz hybrid

    I got the tire today, i mounted the tire on the car first thing and it fit just fine, The diameter fits it is the side wall height that is messing with me now, I would say it is close to an inch in width to much,Which means when i try to put down the inside trunk cover on it is not sitting flat , I could fix this by cutting out a piece of hard foam,Cut out around the tire and that will fix the issue, Right now im waiting to hear back from the people i got the tire from............

    I spoke to the people from ebay and they told me if i have 26" in the trunk area it will fit, The trunk area is 26-1/4", The tire size is 25.64",It looks good to me so i placed the order for the set-up, Hopefully every thing will fit ok, If not he does have a return policy

    Spare tire in a mkz hybrid

    I didnt think of that,Not saying it can not happen,But to my thinking you would need to be hit pretty hard in the rear to move that tire up and over the trunk shelf and also the tire is clamp down pretty good But i does give me something to think about.
  9. Hello all, Recently we made our first lincoln purchase, 2015 mkz hybrid with 30000 miles all options except sun roof, It just dont feel right not having a spare tire in the trunk, Is it possible to get a spare tire set-up from a mkz that will fit in the trunk of a mkz hybrid, This is what i am looking at, https://www.ebay.com/itm/2013-2018-LINCOLN-MKZ-HYBRID-COMPACT-SPARE-TIRE-WITH-JACK-KIT/323443048617?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 Question would be will this fit in the space allowed in the trunk.
