Can I fit a full size tire where the donut is?

Asked by Apr 16, 2017 at 05:07 PM about the 2010 Ford Escape XLS

Question type: General

Hey there, just got a 2010 escape and it
came with the donut underneath as well as
a full size aluminum spare that matches the
rest. Is there any way to mount the full one
underneath instead? Other stuff online
seems to be giving me mixed answers so I
was curious what other people thought.
Thanks!

Without looking at it, I would doubt it as a donut usually fits into a limited space, where as a full size tire then would be too big.

No, that is why they give you a donut. Mount the full sized spare on the tailgate with the proper hardware.
