135 x 15 on a 4" 1/2 4 bolt VW rim, the spare lays horizontal on the battery and on the gas tank. I did one with a carpet cover. Mounted the spare face down and bought a round plastic "Veggie tray" to store small bits in. Small scissor jack and lug socket were mounted out of the way in the engine bay behind the license plate area.
Renfrance, for your visual reference (or Renfrance, see what I did there) here is a picture of the wheel & storage set-up @WOLFGANG and @Alan Merklin are talking about (4.5" wheel / 135 x 15 tire). This is the front trunk of my previous VS. The battery tray & battery is still in the nose of the trunk/hood. Hope you find this helpful.
I installed a couple of chrome footmans loops and then built a leather strap for more of a period correct look. My tire is an actual space saver installed on a 4.5" wheel. Works like a champ, with no battery access issues.
I have a 4.5" rim with a T125 tire - it fit my CMC before I went with the larger 12.6 gallon gas tank. Now it's too tall in back. I'll experiment with no battery or smaller one and probably sink battery down 3-4" by extending the battery well.
