Default For the Record: Impreza L spare will not fit over WRX brakes

As said above I got a flat today and when I went to put my spare on it was a no go. The spare just won't fit. I ended up have to swap the front with the rear. Just something to keep in mind.

Anyone know if the 2001 (and earlier) RS spare fits over WRX brakes...?

So does the L spair fit over the rear WRX brakes? Your car seems new enough to use the later caliper style so most likely they are the same hardware. If that is the case then your post may be misleading, since its not a big deal to swap front and back tires.

My car has WRX brakes front and rear. It is the front brakes that are to big for the spare to fit over. That is why I swapped the front and rear tires and put the spare on the rear.

That's why I chucked my tiny donut when I got WRX front brakes. I think the rotors are bigger than the donut.
