    What Maxxis is selling is just the rubber tire. You need to find a donut wheel for 5x115 and get the tire size from the wheel.

    what about us guys who got the 18 inch wheel option? unless we all share a identical spare tire throughout all wheel sizes? that would surprise me.

    I suspect all Cruzen worldwide share the same donut spare tire size, regardless of OEM tire size. There just isn't that much wiggle room for going larger in the trunk hole.

    The wheels may not be interchangeable from country to country as the US Cruze uses 5x105 and someone posted that the Danish Cruze uses 5x115 bolt pattern. The rubber will most likely be the same, however.

    Diesel models use 5 X 115

    I thought I would post this for everyone trying to find a donut spare for their cruze. I needed one after a hole was blown in the sidewall after hitting a rock on the freeway. the compressor/goo system was useless and everything was closed after dark. So I researched much and couldn't find a 5 by 105 donut wheel anywhere. So I measured a template on an envelope and went to my local pick and pull. I found a donut on a 2001
    Lincoln LS which worked just fine. It cost $15 and problem solved. This shouldn't have been this difficult GM.

    I thought I would pass on some information as I just got through researching and purchasing a Compact Spare tire for my 2014 Cruze Diesel. First of all the bolt patterns are different. The standard Cruze bolt pattern is 5x105 and the Diesel bp is 5x115. Also the Diesel has a 17 " tire size, where as I believe the gas version are mostly 16". In any case you would want to check your tire sizes and factor in your bolt pattern. I was able to get a unused Compact Spare that most likely came from a Lincoln, but the key is to try it out and make sure it fits your vehicle. Hope this helps.
