My car has a full size spare, not the compact spare. The trunk carpet doesn't fit as it should because the tire doesn't sit within the well

What profile tire will fit on a stock 14" 4x108 rim within the space allocated for the space? There standard 70 is much too large

The correct tyre size for the 14" wheel is 185/70 and it should fit easily into the well unless someone has taken a large hammer to the rear of the well to gain more space for the gearbox removal.

To the best of my knowledge the well is the same size for 205/60x15

The spare wheel hump in the boot carpet can vary depending on wheel size

It's more a matter of getting the trunk carpet to sit snug over the tire sitting in the wheel.
