    If you got a D, there's no place for the spare except in the trunk. Just an FYI.

    Otherwise it should be 245/45R19

    There's no place to put a spare tire in the frunk at all after the refresh. Refreshed S 60's without the premium package have the same frunk cutout as the S 60D's with premium.

    We have a spare rim and tire that we take on road trips when repair time may be critical. Storing it in the rear trunk upside down provides extra storage inside the rim and if trunk space is at a premium we place the spare tire behind the driver's seat.

    I agree that there is no fixed place for the full sized spare but that's not a problem for us.

    I would suggest getting a set of rims and tyres for Winter [I want winter rubber down South in the UK for un-gritted icy roads, let alone the occasional bit of snow! I would have assumed that would be the norm up in Scotland? perhaps you are on the gulf-stream West?!!] , and then one of those can be used out-of-season if you get a puncture.

    We take a summer tyre [and jack] with us when we drive to skiing in France (on the assumption that getting a new tyre might take at least an overnight stop to arrange, but maybe its not actually that bad in practice)
