Has anyone run into this on their SF? I installed 215/70/r15 Geolander G015 tires and love them except for the fact that the spare doesn't fit well in the well: it sits too high and the floor doesn't lie flat over it. I deflated it to ~15 PSI and it still won't fit flush.

I've read on this forum that this size should fit in the spare well. I'm curious - has anyone run into this issue? I'm considering going to a body shop to ask them to "massage" the well to make the tire fit, any inclination for whether this would work or is a good idea? Thanks!

Makes sense it does not fit. Stock at 15" rim was 205/70R15. You have a much wider tire. Even my stock is 215/60R16.
