The point in removing the tire was to save weight...isn't MDF heavy?

Here you go. Basically, subtract the thickness of the foam on the sides & that's how low the floor is.

Steph, you trunk is sick.

For those without a spare or thinking about running without a spare

DO NOT USE FIX A FLAT!!

That stuff goes in through the stem(aka tpms sensor) and it WILL ruin the sensor, that crap will also render the tire non repairable, a proper patch will not adhere to the tire.

That single can of fix a flat can cost you $150 for a sensor and, depending on tread wear a whole set of tires. Make the call and have it towed, much cheaper.

I spent $0 supporting the floor after taking out the tire and OEM foam spacers. Basically I used 4 pieces of plastic blue packing foam from an old monitor I recycled anyways, the kind that you can cut and trim to the right height easily without it exploding all over. It's held up fine to anything I've thrown in there so far and the carpet still fits perfectly. To keep the carpet from moving around I used a small zip ties and two holes on each side to secure the carpet in place, you can barely see them.
