It should fit, but I don't get the need. Spare tire has so much room, I used mine to install an amplifier on a custom wooden rack. If I would've really worked on it, I could've installed a custom subwoofer there as well, just like it was done on a first generation Scion tC.

I drive long distances and have to be at certain places at definite dates/times so I if I get a flat I don't want to be slowed down by a donut.


I looked at car-parts.com for an salvage iM OEM wheel and will call some places this week for a price.

Having had a flat out in the wild, I would never drive without a spare

Sure it will. They would never make a car where a full-size would not fit.
Not sure about Toyota, but that most certainly is not the case with VW or Audi. No full size wheel fits in the spare wells in those. I've tried. If it fits diameter wise, it's far too wide. Maybe Toyota is different but in my experience as an Audi tech, I have yet to be able to do this since 2007.

When I've taken my 2009 Corolla S on roads trips over the years I always replace the donut spare with a regular tire for the trip. It has always fit just fine. I'll be taking a trip next month from Washington state to New Mexico and back so I'll have to try a regular wheel and tire in my new iM.

On eBay and car-part.com the OEM 4261112D10 wheel costs around $100 pickup to $100+$40 ship, respectfully. But who needs the OEM wheel for a spare when a regular rim would do fine. Do you know where I can buy a regular 17"x7" rim?

Tire Rack and Discount Tire are a couple of options. Any larger wheel dealer would probably be able to get them as well.

For a spare you could even get a 15x6 steel wheel and a 195/65R15 for a spare. It's a lot better choice then a donut spare and it would fit in the well better since its not as wide.
