This is how I made my spare tire (my car didn't even have a donut under the hood when I bought it in 2002):
- Rim is a 15" 4x100 bolt pattern rim from a 1990's Dodge product of some sort (Stealth?). I bought it in a local junkyard. Cost $10 IIRC.
- Tire is a 195/50-15 Goodyear GT: http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/523082_365319050180018_100001057778755_1088716_12050335_n.jpg Cost $45-$50 IIRC.

Pictures of the tire installed front & rear are hyperlinked from Message #84622 -- it does fit both.

As stated, I have driven on this spare before, installed in the back. I noticed no real difference in handling at speeds up to 45-50 MPH, so in a worst case scenario I could certainly drive home at reduced speed. Since the tire itself is a real tire, there is no practical mileage limit for such a trip (up to 50,000 miles of course).
