I have a 2019 Ecosport! I bought an aluminum rimed donut spare from a 2004 Ford Focus SVT. I changed the rubber to a 135 80R16, which is the correct size that will go with the 205 50R17 tires on the car!
It’s the only rim that will fit around the large brake calipers!

Nice. We put full size rim and tire in the back of each of our Ecosports. Problem is that pretty much denies one the use of the back storage area for anything else...

Thanks BugzyWabbit. I had a sidewall blow out over nothing and wont go to far without a spare. I found your advice and read many other owners commits regarding this. the 2004 Ford Focus 16'' spare donut will safely clear the caliper and fits almost perfectly in the space in the back. Also scissor jack and wrench. 120 bucks. run flats are 900 bucks.
I contacted Speedway recyclers about this and Matt hooked me up and checked everything first. Highly recommend speedway recycling for getting a spare. very hard to find a 4 hole rim and this specific 17 inch tire size in a jam. Low profiles are too easy to have sidewall damage. Get the spare and jack,it fits snug and removes any worry travelling. Now I can spend money on lifting the vehicle or going with 16 inch rims.
