Default Full-size spare tire? - Is it possible???

I have read the steel spare tyre of the PJ doesn't fit the front, cause it wont clear the bigger brakes.
Did anyone test if a front PJ Mini-Light fit the space for the spare tyre ?

I'd rather rely a spare tyre than a tyre pump

Correct! The OE Ford spare tire does little good for a S197 Saleen with the front brake upgrade.

You might look into finding a custom rim or an alternative spare that might fit over the 14" brake kit. Maybe something made for drag racing?

There is still a minor issue since these Saleen Mustangs feature a staggered rim/tire package. You can burn the clutches in the traction-lock by running two tires/wheels of different circumferences in the rear.

The 18x9 inch wheels featured on the 2007 S281 Heritage and 2008-09 Racecraft clear the 14" front brake upgrade.

You probably didn't understand my question.
If I find another PJ front wheel, will it fit the space in the trunk ?

No. It's a large wheel & tire.
