A full size tire fit in my 2006 while being fully inflated.
My 2007 came with a full-sized spare. I don't think there is any difference between the 2006 and 2007.

I can't fit a full-sized spare in my 2018, but I haven't tried some of the tips I've seen in this thread. I just verified by tape measure, and didn't try to actually put a full-sized tire in.

Has anyone else been able to fit an 18" stock tire in the spare tire well? I currently have a premium with a 17" full-size spare and am looking to get wheels for winter tires. For better or worse, there is much greater availability of 18" OEM wheels than 17". There seem to be conflicting experienced in this thread, though it's probably not a huge issue if it protrudes slightly above the well.

Actually, now that I compare tire sizes (https://tiresize.com/tiresizes/225-60R17.htm and https://tiresize.com/tiresizes/225-55R18.htm), they should almost certainly fit.
