When I have to use the spare, can the damaged regular 15' wheel be mounted underneath the car? Will it fit? ...damage the car or wheel?

There were no takers...guess it's too early for anyone to have used the spare.

Since my 500 is still on order, I played with the mechanism at the dealership. It's pretty slick, but store some disposable gloves with the jack, because that spare will be SUPER DIRTY.

You can find the 500's manual on this website

Per the manual, the damaged wheel should be stored in the cargo area...guess if it fit below, we would have gotten a full-size spare...

BTW, The correct wheel bolt torque is 100 ft lbs (135 N·m).
