MCS 2006 convertible spare tire

Hello everyone,

Just got a MCS 2006 convertible and the previous owner has got rid of the runflats tires for regular tires. The thing is there are no spare tire.

I looked a lot on the web and found that many people put it behind the passenger's seat, which I plan to do if I can't find a way to put it in the trunk (I know that for winter I will have the option to put it straight up because of the easy-load function that makes a bigger trunk space)

I have found that I need a 15'' spare with 4X100 bolt pattern. I found one on a classified ad website near my home.

It's from a Honda Civic but the seller doesn't know what year.

Should it work ? Do I have to really jack the car and try it or I should have no problem with this spare tire ?

Thank you

Thanks for your answer.

By looking at your first link it looks like almost any honda civic is the same fit than mini cooper so I will be good ! I was pretty confident but it looks even better now
