Has anyone replaced their "donut" spare tire with a OEM or Aftermarket wheel/Tire? When I purchased my 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport I asked the dealer about replacing the spare tire with a full sized wheel/tire. He said it would not fit. However I did find a OEM tire/wheel on Ebay and it fit under the rear perfectly. I am now searching for a replacement tire/wheel for my spare but due to cost I do not want the OEM 20" rim/tire that came on my SEL. So far only Discount Tire has 20" rims for the Palisade SEL.

been wondering if a full size OEM wheel would fit also. Haven’t had time to pull one of the wheels to try it out. eBay has a set of the 20” wheel. Maybe get a group of 4 here to split it? It’s not a perfect set, some scuff marks, but will definitely do the job of having a full size spare in case of an incident during a road trip and not having to limit yourself to a slower speed before getting the damaged tire fixed.

Well I purchased a 2020 Palisade 20" rim from a Limited Model on Ebay for $275.00. The seller showed a picture of the Palisade that had front end damage. All the wheels and tired look good so I took a chance. When it arrived I was really surprised as the rim had only a few minor nicks. I know this is not the exact rim type on my SEL but for a spare it's great. I purchased a new 20" tire and had it installed and balanced. Yesterday I removed the "emergency spare tire" and mounted the new wheel/tire. It fit with no problems, but i does show more tire tread from the rear of the car but it will not cause any problems. Now I can take long trips and not be concerned about having to use the "donut spare" tire.

FYI I am planning to do this and have ordered a wheel and tire. My understanding is others have done it and it should fit in the space below the vehicle fine although it will hang a little lower. The hitch receiver I have already hangs down a bit anyway so I’m not too concerned. The one thing is that I am getting a steel rim and was advised to get an 18” rim and 245 60 tire so that it balances better with the other wheels.

I'd love to see a pic as well. As someone that had to get off the backroads of cape cod with a tiny spare, I'd prefer keeping a full size on me at all times.
FWIW... didn't happen with this vehicle.... but still.
