Re: Add a spare tire!

Thu Apr 29, 2021 8:03 pm

I just cobbled together a 27" cardboard disk, out of the box that had held a "diversity" lawn sign I had custom-made, to check whether it would be possible to stow a donut standing on edge on the port side of the trunk. It fits with room to spare, and if anything, the diameter is slightly larger than that of a regular Leaf tire.

It may be a while before I can actually afford a donut (I'm still recovering from buying the car).

The general consensus of this thread seems to be that in general, Altima donuts will fit a Leaf; does anybody have direct knowledge of whether that is true of the 2018 model year?

They haven't changed the wheels - the '15 17" Juke rims that fit my 2013 also fit my 2018. The "Leaf II" is actually about 75% "Leaf I." As long as the diameter matches, and you have the right year Altima donut, you should have no trouble.
