I was cleaning up the garage last weekend and came across the damaged rim from my incident with a pothole in May.

So I thought about getting it repaired and using it as a full sized spare instead of the mini-spare that comes with the car. Anyways, I called around and found out that since there was no crack, it would cost about $75 to have it put back into "round". I checked on Craigslist and there are used single 215/45/17 tires for between $50 and $75.

Now should I look for bi-directional tires since uni-directional tires would be right or wrong depending on if I replace the flat on the driver's side or passenger's side? Or since it would be only temporary, it wouldn't matter?

Check tire size. The full size tire will not fit in the spare storage place.

That makes sense! Thanks - could have been a costly process for nothing.

Definitely won't fit. The diameter of the rim/tire is ~25.5" while the storage space is about ~24" at the narrowest point. Too bad!
