Does it not have a spare wheel as standard??

I would imagine other ford makes may fit.

no spare the zetec model has a cannister that seals the puncture , but after use thetyre is scrap so it becomes a very expensive thing to happen . if its the side wall that is damaged or blows out its a recovery job so a 15 min tyre change could be up to 3 hours wait for the aa recovery truck .

I see, would a focus wheel fit or any other ford make? I cant imagine that they'd use too different settings for wheels on the different ranges as it would be more expensive for the inital production and designing.

Here is a wheel fitment guide. You can see which wheels have the same PCD and fitment.
