    The rim may measure 15" outer edge to outer edge, but the bead is smaller https://tireguides.com/TireTips/TireDocument/9

    A spare tire from an old Honda Civic should work fine, if you have any available in Portugal.

    Vitaminado, did you review the chart I posted? It lists other makes & models that should fit. On that post is a link to a website that lists other model vehicles - ones that might be more prevalent in your market/country.

    The rim measures 15.5" but the sizing info states it's a 14". Like I said, a temporary spare will not be the same size as your normal wheels, and it doesn't have to. It's only meant to get you to a service garage. Just make sure the bolt circle diameter and center bore are compatible with your vehicle.

    Thank you again Eggman. Do you think that a regular wheel will fit in the space...or is there a height problem?

    That's a good question. If I ever have my tires off I'll try to fit one. Someone else may have tried - I don't know. I suppose it could be measured...

    A standard wheel and tire will not fit in the spare tire well. I already tried it. The well is just big enough for the temporary spare.
