LOL! Yeah I had to roll on it. Blew out a sidewall because of construction debris. It's so embarrassing. You need a stock potenza? I'll sell you one of mine for cheap. Only 2300 miles on 'em.

^^^ I think you are right. It is not really particularly safe to be driving around with one wheel/tire that is lighter and smaller than the rest...so they figure that if it is ugly and noticeable enough, people will be less likely to drive around on it.

I hated the fact that I had to drive on it for 2 days. Luckily it was a rear tire, not a front tire that was blown. That's why I bought the Avon Tech's

Does a full size tire fit in the spare tire space?
with enough motivation, sure.

i live by these three words - it always fits.

the wheel fits in the well, just is a bit too high for the cardboard cover piece to sit flush. if you'd like to see for yourself, fasteddie posted some pics of it here.

You mean they think we're stupid, and wouldn't replace the spare?!!!
