Default Full Size Spare?

Does a full size wheel/tire spare fit in the spare tire area?

That Aura comes with a little temporary tire!? I would think it would be a full size spare with matching rim..

If I get a full size spare, do I need to get something special so that the tire pressure monitoring works?

Almost. The full size tire is wider than the temporary one, and it creates a bump in the trunk floor/mat.

Go to the dealer and buy a "take-off" steel rim and the tire pressure monitor. They can mount up a tire and balance it. The TPM is about $50-75.

What I can do is use a 205/55/17 tire. It is almost an inch narrower, but same tire diameter as stock 225/50/17 tire.
