That's the same size as my Donut I got from a 2014 ICE Focus. I can't imagine ford stocking the same size donut but with a different offset unless they really had to.

Thanks for the quick response. The spare fit perfectly. I put it on the rear and did not try it on the front so I cant confirm that it fits in front. But it seems to be the exact same tire and rim used on the ice focus. Unfortunately my flat was a sidewall hole so I need a new tire. Bummer. But.... I was at the dealer today, as the flat occurred 1 mile from the dealership, on the way home from there. And I mentioned the flat to the tech and he says to me that those tires have a lot of dry rot. I looked and he is right, The sidewalls are all cracked. This was not noticeable to me when I bought the car and they only had under 30 lbs of pressure in the tires. This was a certified used car with the 172 point inspection and all that I bought 3 months ago. Should they have noticed this dry rot upon the inspection? Should they be replacing my tires for free?


Responded to your other post on this issue.
