Does anyone know or have any idea on how I can put in my full sized spare with a 215/70 R16 AT tyre into the wheel well without ripping out all the styrofoam in my xt...
If I have to use a rubber mallet to get it in I will though I don't particularly wont to do that...

Having a flat spare tyre kinda defeats the purpose of having a spare tyre in the first place.

I like this approach. You could fit pretty much any tyre in that hole

If you're running AT's on a Forester, you should be carrying a Compressor anyway

Hopefully it all goes well...

You might still need the rubber mallet approach. My 215/65-16 AT's wouldn't go in deflated without a *lot* of effort. The difference is more than just the profile height step from /60's, the tread height itself on the AT's is greater than the OEM road tyres. Do let us know how it goes.

Well I deflated the tyre as much as possible...
It was still a bit of an effort to get it in but it's in there...
Even manage to lock it in with the thumbscrew with the washer...
I'll throw up a pic in morning...

What im saying is if you need to carry a compressor to make it work. Then you may aswell also carry a tubeless repair kit. A tubeless repair kit will be able to fix the vast majority of common punctures. Puncture is probably the most common type of tyre failure. Its very rare to have a de-lamination / egg bulge / other tyre fail. So you could almost get away with just the repair kit and have no spare at all.
