Spare wheel option

Hello,
I have been searching about the problem of my zafria b not having a spare wheel, and the thief problem and have got myself a cage, jack will source a locking device later. Its all of a 51 plate a model my problem is i think, its only got a 15" spare.
tyres on it are 195/65r15, the tyres on mine are 225/45r17 now i know i carnt use the smaller tyre on my car but would i be able to put a differant tyre on the 15" steel wheel or would i be best getting a 17" wheel and tyre.

Hope all of that makes sense lol.

Thanks in advance

You'll be OK. the 15" wheel has a thicker sidewall so the rolling radius is actually the same. https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc...5r15-225-45r17
