    I have OEM 19" tires. What would be the objection(s), caveats, risks, etc., to getting a 19" donut spare of another brand car, assuming it also has the same 5-bolt pattern? Any and all answers appreciated, both + and -.

    Biggest thing - have to clear the brakes... the Tesla has some Big Brakes(tm). Then question of where you'd store it, as it won't fit in the frunk's "microwave" and would take a considerable amount of space.

    I haven't read of anyone trying any but would love to hear if they have.

    I can't really answer your question.

    But mmm, donuts.

    I have trouble answering rhetorical questions as well.
