Very true. Both front tires need to be the same. It sounds like there might be enough room in the trunk to hold the Bolt rim and tire as a spare. Likely there are some folks that would sell their factory rims and tires as they put aftermarket stuff on.Always use the factory tires on the front, even if you are forced to move one from the rear and install the spare on the rear. Overall tire size can differ widely from the factory tire, to the spare being used. You don't want different speed inputs going into the axle/transmission. It's the same, only backwards on a rear drive car especially if it has a limited slip.
You can burn it up and cause lots of damage with two different sized tires
on the same drive axle
You can use a compact spare. Just make sure the oddball is in the rear.Very true. Both front tires need to be the same.

If a full size Volt Gen 2 rim is good for the Bolt, would it be reasonable to assume that the Volt (2) donut would be suitable, too? From what I understand, Bolt and Volt (2) have the same wheel, but it's always good to ask.I have a full size oem volt Gen 2 rim and tire.
The "wheel well" that the Bose sub and amp are installed in isn't completely circular - it has a flat section at the back. Because of that, I think you'll find that there isn't enough fore-aft room down there to put a spare even if you removed the Bose equipment.Now I need to figure out how to store the spare tire, jack and the lug nut tool. I have the Bose sub and amp taking up the space the spare tire normally goes.
Thanks for the info on the spare...
How does it match up with the OEM tire diameter?
The spare has a 22.34" diameter while the stock tire has a 25.46" diameter. When used only at the rear, this should be fine.In case your kit doesn't have a tire pressure gauge and air pump, it will be a good idea to keep those handy. Along with always checking the spare tire pressure (a couple times a month). Doing that will set you up perfectly for the worst of situations.
Often I had to help people with low air pressure spare tires, not fun.
