The only difference is the diameter of the wheel, the tyre diameters are essentially the same + or - a few millimetres. I have the 18" standard wheels on my trim 4 and got a spare wheel with jack, brace and bag via eBay. All brand new for £139.

I bought the full size spare wheel from Jennings motor group:

and bought a matching Michelin Pilot Sport tyre from blackcircles.com. It cost a fair amount, but I wanted to feel more secure in the event of a puncture on the motorway.

That link is a brilliant price for a new alloy. When I was looking for a VW it was in the region of £600 each!!!

Could someone please confirm whether the Wheelshop spacesaver wheel can be fitted using the original wheelnuts?
My last car had a separate set of wheelnuts for the spare.

Maybe maybe not. It all depends on the seating. I used to think that you always needed different wheelnuts but perhaps it is more complicated. It is the shape of the shoulder that matters and how it spreads the load on the face of the wheel. https://www.honestjohn.co.uk/askhj/answ ... el-wheels-

What do wheelshop say? Not a lot of money to get a new set of wheel nuts if you have to
Last car a Hyundai IX35 diesel. Next car may well be a Niro.

Yesterday I reversed over a blade in a supermarket car park and the tyre was damaged beyond repair. I'm so glad I had bought the full size spare wheel now. Getting a replacement tyre today.

You need to remove both the upper and lower foam storage units under the boot floor, then the full size wheel and tyre fits perfectly in the space. There's even room just about to put in a wheel brace and jack. I'll take a photo later and upload it here.
