Full size spare fit into trunk?

Bought a used 2007 Sports. Would a full size spare able to fit into the compact space?

A full size spare will not fit in the compact spare compartment.

Back to back conflicting answers. Do you own a tape measure? I know it's cold outside, but it shouldn't take five minutes to measure the diameter and width of the tire, then measure the space where the spare fits.

I tried to put a stock wheel in the well after getting aftermarket and it would not fit. The bolt didn't fit and the carpet wouldn't close.

You might be able to get a base wheel in there.

I have a EUDM Jazz and the stock 195x65/14" wheel did fit into the spare well. But my new 205x40/16" does not fit (too wide).

So the answer is:
Depending on the wheelsize, a spare tire does fit into the spare compartment.
