Last week, when I thought my punctured 225/60x15 might be headed for 
spare-tiredom, I tested its fit in the trunk well. It did work OK, 
only raising the plywood cover about 1/8" at its near (rear) edge. A 
pretty reasonable fit for such a balloon of a tire, IMO, and I'd 
think a 215/60 should be a breeze..
