Default Will Full Size Spare fit in my 05 Maxima Trunk?

So, that's the question:

Will a full size (original equipment) wheel and tire fit in my 05 Maxima trunk spare tire well?

(Searched and could not find the answer.)

Thanks.

Great! It looked like the diameter would fit, but I wasn't sure that the trunk floor would sit down flat once the wheel was in there.

EDIT:

Well... before buying a full-sized spare, I thought I'd better just suck it up, pull everything out of my trunk and measure it.

Bad news... it WON'T fit. The spare tire well's diameter is large enough for a full-sized spare to drop into, but it's only 8.5" deep at it's deepest point in the middle. The tire is 10" wide! So, it will stick up above the floor level in the trunk at least 1.5" to 2", which is way too high to even put the floor back in.

Oh well... I guess I'm keeping the mini-spare.

You know what... the difference may be between an SE model and an SL model '05 Maxima.

Mine is an SE model with the upgraded suspension and wheel/tire package. The SE model wheel/tires are bigger than the SL model. The SE has 18" wheels with 245-45-18 tires. That's a lower profile and wider tire than the ones that come on an SL model.

My stock SE wheel/tire definitely doesn't fit in the trunk spare tire well, but maybe an SL model wheel/tire does since it's smaller and narrower.
