Don't worry about discussions or measuring, just take off a regular wheel and you will find that it fits in the spare compartment on the 2019 crv.I have a 4th gen 2012 CR-V, I was wondering if anyone has installed a regular full size spare, in place of the temp spare?
Unless the full size spare is the same tire (brand & model) as your other four and you include it your regular rotation, it should be considered as "temporary" also. You don't want to run mismatched tires - be it brand, model or wear - on a regular basis. Sure, you can probably take the full size spare up it up to highway speed, which you shouldn't do with a donut spare, but you'll be safer with a matched set. Again, matched includes wear.Thanks, I will try this, I would love to have a real spare, not a temporary, what does that mean anyway?
Which is exactly the same problem as having a full size spare that doesn't match the other four. It won't be as bad as a donut as far as handling (at least the size is the same) but an unmatched full size spare should still be considered as temporary.The only reason they recommend a 50mph max speed with a 'donut' spare is that the handling is different, it could surprise the driver. <---Sez the lawyers
