    Hi orangepop,
    I would suggest forking out the extra $ for a same size spare as the rest of the car. I think it is cheap insurance against what potentially go wrong if you were to drive any distance with different size tyres.
    Interestingly, a year ago when I took my car in for a service, I asked them to swap the (until then unused) spare with a front wheel which I had kerbed. They were reluctant even though the tyres are all same model and size, saying that because the spare was unused it could cause some issues. They would however put the unused spare on the back, and moved a back wheel to the front and put the kerbed wheel into the spare hole. Food for thought I think.
    By the way, I just had mine serviced again, and .... nothing to report, all good and boring.

    Thanks Gregz, yes I’m of the track now ... hence the original question to make sure I wasn’t wasting time & money. I’ll need to get 2 spares as I always have one in the van for long trips .... easier to get to the van spare too. I’m also a Bit concerned that the 275/55r20 will fit in boot space . Always nice to get a clean bill of health at service time boring is good sometimes.

    I’ve been told the 275/55/20 fits in floor ....equally keen to confirm before I fork out for 5xnew boots!

    As I have said in another post the 275/55 R20 fits in the boot (spare wheel well) OK. I have one in my spare wheel well with no issues at all. Gordon told me that the 285 will fit also but the lid will sit on the tyre and be lifted a few mm off the floor. The 275 fits perfectly, however.

    My 275/55R20 AT+ have passed my outback travel test even though I destroyed one and damaged the rim when at 40-50 kph I ran into a 6-8" high lump of embedded limestone hidden by a small bush near the edge of a rarely-used track. No problems with normal large rock pieces loose or embedded at 90 kph and apart from the wrecked one, no marks on the sidewalls and no obvious damage to the treads.

    So I now have my 2 spares 47 Offset 20” rims off a current Sport but I had to buy a set of 4 so I’ll list the other 2 in the market place.
