I was just given a 2003 Honda Pilot that has its original spare tire. Given that it's 18 years old it's probably dry rotted to hell and unsafe to use in an emergency. I'd like to order a new one but I can't seem to find the size online. I'd rather not crawl under the car and find out if someone here knows. Thanks

Just get any Gen 1 regular mag and tire. A popular thing to do around here.
IIRC- it's listed on the sticker on the drivers front doorframe with rec. pressures also.

It will fit under in the wheel well. If you haven't taken it down in a while, it's probably out of air anyways.

Not only is the donut spare prohibitively expensive, but a regular full size spare fits just fine. That's what a lot of folks around here have done.

Hope your cable is not frozen.
Mine was. Had to order a new hoist when I replaced the loathsome donut with a full size spare.

However, I take comfort in the fact that I did it at my convenience before I would have been forced to discover the issue by the side of a road somewhere to my great inconvenience.
