In Canada and for good reasons we are all supplied with at least a space saver spare. I replaced the 24 year old tire in the Alfa with a "just barely fits if you take out the plastic inserts" standard spare. I'm not sure why I did that.

My 18 year old space saver in the SAAB is just useless ballast by now. Can't find a 15 in rim to replace it with a full sized spare, which would fit. Standard Aero rims of which I have four extras do not fit in the space (which is why I point out space savers aren't, the road wheel doesn't fit in the well so no usable space has been saved).

Both my new cars have space savers. The Jaguar is even alloy!!!!!

FYI here's a picture of the optional Stelvio tool kit and spare tire. It's an 18" alloy with a tire that needs to be inflated via the included compressor. As I said I think this spare would be a workable solution and should fit on any Giulia except the Quadrifoglio which would have brake clearance issues.

When I have a chance I will measure and see if this complete tray will drop into the space below the trunk floor on a Giulia.

It is interesting that the Stelvio has a spare available, but the Giulia doesn't, yet the Stelvio will be driven on the same roads as the Giulia, it not being an offroader but a bling vehicle, judging by the advertising.

Well, they had to get the weight of the Stelvio to some 600 pounds over the base Giulia.

To be serious, Joe, that is a very tidy package for a "spare".
