Then you are out of luck. Ford do not make a space saver wheel that would fit your car and also fit in the box. So it looks like a can of squirty cream for you 🤣

A space saver wheel will probably fit on the rear, especially if with drum rear brakes, then move the rear road wheel to the front if a front puncture. 
may get you out of trouble but not ideal.

A very good point Roger. 👍

The correct procedure is as you say to fit the space saver on the rear and put the full size wheel on the front. I hadn't thought about the fact it may well have rear drum brakes (don't you just love Ford's cost cutting ?)

Hold that can of squirty cream for just now 🤣

The squirty stuff usually makes the tyre unrepairable and you have to renew the squirty as well.  If slow puncture, inflate without the glue and down to the tyre shop.

Iv’e just bought the 18” 125/60/18 for our ruby edition, haven’t tried fitting yet.

Just an update, the 125/60/18 wheel and tyre will only fit in the megabox lifted front or back. Will not lie flat. I’m not happy I can adequately secure it especially if tail ended.

I’ll try returning it as they assured me it would fit.

That's a larger size than the one Ford list in the handbook.

Ford say the wheel size is

Checking the Puma 2023 Ford Owners Handbook it does list a spare wheel (if fitted as an option - but not for the ST). Seems Ford have gone for an even smaller size than the one I'd calculated.

Although I think that you could also fit a 125/80/16 or 125/70/17 in the box lying flat.

Thanks Unofix, the larger discs and callipers preclude the use of the spacesaver on the ST.

Have just concluded Ford size 125/70/16 or a 125/60/17 may be the answer for me.

Why won't it fit, brake sizes are the same across the range apart from the ST which has bigger discs and calipers, as mentioned earlier in this thread the correct size for the space saver is 125/70/16

Absolutely spot on both dimensions are the same.

Also I don't know if people are getting confused with ST line, ST line X and ST.

ST is the 200bhp high performance models whereas the ST line and ST line X is just a trim variation.

 And it's different to the 125/80x16 Unofix originally suggested earlier in the thread.

Just to update, the 18” with the 60 profile and the 17” with the 70 profile (aspect ratio) will only lie flat in the megabox if you space it off the floor by 2-3 inches due to the taper on the megabox walls.

The Ford 125 70 r16 is 1” less in diameter so should not have any issues appart from securing in the megabox. (Check calliper clearance though)
