If you can find 18" or bigger spare wheel.
I'm quite sure, that 17" or smaller won't fit because big brake support.
Usually the spares are smaller, but PCD is same as Golf and many other VW and MB (5x112 center hole 57,1).
Not only is the PCD the same as Golf/Scirocco/Passat/Tiguan/Arteon/A3/Leon, but the wheel width is too, at 7.5J. Get a space saver wheel for either of those (only the wheel) and you'll be OK. The tyre off any of those cars won't be suitable though. The diameter of a tyre shod 18" ID3 wheel + 215/55 R18 wheel is 694mm. The closest of those named cars above is the Tiguan, with its wheel coming in at 22mm larger diameter (on 235/55 R18). That's too much of a difference with the regular wheel.

Not sure what overall width the space saver wheel is, but I'd suggest you need an overall diameter inc tyre of 695mm +/- 2%. You'll be needing a tyre with a sidewall of 118mm.

5n0601027a i think this tiguan is closer to it, but will the 18 inch rim clear the calipers?

I have ordered the tiguan 145/80r18 spacesaver , which comes in at 689.2. Radius. I will let you know if it fits over the brake calipers

The tiguan spare will fit perfectly on the back but you need a 3mm spacer to clear calipers on the front. You can strap it down in the boot with the tie down hooks with a ratchet strap.

Have you bought a spacer yet?

I have the 145/80/18" Tiguan skinny space saver spare as well (chosen as the circumference was the closest to the 215/50/19" tyres fitted.

Yes i have it strapped down in the boot. It just scrapes the calipers without the 3mm spacer. Make sure the spacer has a 57.1mm centre bore, it will make it easier to to line up.

I bought some spacers on eBay but the centre bore was too tight despite despite being "57.1mm" clearly it wasn't, so they were returned, as I too found out the wheel just touched the front caliper.

Do you want to sell your spare one?

I am still waiting on mine they sent out a larger bore by mistake, but with bolts rather than studs it would be very hard to line up.
