Hello. I’ve upgraded from my stock 17s to 18s about a month or so ago. My question is whether I should also swap out my stock spare (16 inch) to that of an SI which I assume is (17 inch). Correct me if I’m wrong but there’s a max 2 inch difference in wheel size when it comes to wheels on your car and your spare donut. I figure I’d close the gap a bit by upgrading my spare to a 17 inch since I Bought my aftermarket wheels in a set of 4 and not 5 like some would do. Any feedback would be appreciated!

Nah. Keep it. It's all about the outside diameter, not wheel size. You're fine.

Btw, the Si doesnt even come with a spare. :cool:
