Question Spare tire interchange?

I need to hit the yards in search of a replacement spare for the one that's missing in my LX. I have seen the list in this section of what cars share the 5 X 4.25 bolt pattern but what non-T-Bird/Cougar cars are most likely to have a correct or usable spare in the event I don't come across a T-Bird/Cougar? I'd prefer one that will tuck into the proper storage space with the jack and wrench (which I have).


1990 Thunderbird LX 3.8L injected
1987 Buick Grand National Astroroof 3.8L injected, turbocharged
1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham 3.8L carb'd
1967 Buick GS400 convertible (not a 3.8L )
1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser wagon (or this one )

Look in the Wheels 101 sticky.

Most likely to find one in a 86-04 Taurus, but realize some of the options might require special items like different lug nuts for the LS wheels, for example.

97 Mark VIII LSC/Silver/Gray leather
97 Cougar 4.6 Sport/White Opalescent Tricoat Metallic /Gray leather down but not out?
89 Cougar LS 3.8/Oxford White/Gray velour/HG need replaced AGAIN
00 Grand Marquis LS/Vibrant White/Gray velour
63 Falcon 302/black and rust/shed isn't moving
82 F-150/Oxford White/dumb VV carb doesn't pass emissions
