2019 Touring Sports - Spare Wheel Fitment?

Hi,

I've just bought a 2019 Toyota Corolla Touring Sports that just comes with a TRK rather than a spare wheel.

Having recently experienced a puncture late at night in rural Devon in another car (single track road, middle of nowhere, pitch black dark) I want to get a spare.

In my Corolla the spare wheel well is carpeted so does anybody know if underneath there is a threaded hole for a retaining screw. Also, will the wheel well just take a space saver or could I fit a full-size 17" wheel in there?

Any advice gratefully received. Thanks.

Good question. My 2019 TS 2.0 Excel has a space saver. I can’t answer about the thread for locking it in place, but from eyeballing the space saver in the wheel well, I’d be amazed if a full size didn’t fit. When I drive across Europe I take a full size spare wheel with me, so I hope one does fit under there. Off to read those threads above now!

In better times I have two driving holidays in Europe a year and so like you would prefer to have a full size spare rather than a space saver. I did some rough measuring and think a 17" wheel would fit but would like to know for sure.

I have a 1.8 TS design, to which I have fitted a Auris 17in space saver as I have lowered the boot floor due to a large dog needing head room. I can confirm there is a threaded whole under the carpet. A  17in full size wheel will fit in as I had to use my spare due to a full tyre blow out after 400 miles from new! the full size fitted the recess.

Thanks - that's exactly what I needed to know.

Just an update. 

My 2019 TS Excel 2.0 has a space saving wheel sat in a HUGE wheel well. It would easily fit a full sized wheel in there, though at this stage I havent actually done it.

Also, it does have a locking / threaded nut thing to hold it into place, and this would work with a full sized. The full sized wheel would still allow the boot floor to be at the lower level too from my measurements, which is great, and a full sized wheel acts like a bowl meaning you can store loads of stuff *inside it* (not on it like the space saver), such as the tools and first aid kit, further increasing above deck boot space. 

When I eventually find a full sized wheel to use as a spare and fit it, I will update this with photos, but that could be a few weeks as I likely wont buy one until my next trans-European road trip. 

Hope that's of some help.

I was in two minds whether to buy a space saver or a full size wheel but eventually decided on the latter and have ordered the following:

https://toyotadirectparts.co.uk/parts/toyota-corolla/corolla-mk12-2019-present/accessories-corolla-mk12-2019-present/toyota-corolla-2019-present-alloy-wheel-17-2/

I also cut a very small hole in the boot carpet to expose the threaded hole for the retaining screw.

When the wheel arrives I will then need to get a tyre for it and buy a retaining screw although Toyota don't sell one apparently as, according to their official eBay parts store, a 17" wheel won't fit in the wheel well of a Corolla TS (which is obviously incorrect). I also own a Celica that has a full size spare so if that retaining screw fits I shall just buy another the same.

I ordered one of these from eBay to secure my space saver, seems excellent value.

Can anyone confirm if the wheel well in the TS Corolla is the same as the hatchback one?
