does full size standard wheel fit in spare wheel bay?

has anyone got a full size spare on an active or dynamic? It didnt look like it would fit in the spacesaver hole, and I wonder where/how people store it?

20 extra for a new Continental seems a better bet than a rubbish spacesaver!

Can't help with the question, but when I had a puncture in my 100hp the wheel stood about an inch proud of the wheel well (195mm tyres) so with 165s (?) it might just about be fine....

Yep, I brought a full size Steel wheel & tyre combination from someone who had switched to alloys, it fits fine.

However thre is a classic design c0ck up, to check the tyre pressure you have to remove the wheel from the wheel well
