Here’s the conclusion of my VN spare tire project:

$$ Purchased 2013 Genesis alloy 4x18 wheel (came with 155/80-18 tire).
$$ Purchased new 125/70-18 compact tire (previously noted same as i30N spare). Used manual tire changer to swap the tires. Made custom tire hold down w/ 8mm x 1.25 x 60mm hex bolt to keep spare secure.
$ Purchased scissor jack from older get Elantra.
Having peace of mind (at least for me) from a real spare tire... priceless!

Fully inflated spare fits perfect in the well with room to... er... spare. Jack tucked off to the side (to keep from bouncing around). Threw the stock compressor back in along with the other std items (tow hook, screwdriver, etc). Floor replaced and sits perfectly flat to stock position.
What did you use for the circular tie down? Looks like a piece of black wood and a smaller piece of rubber?

Have any Canadians found a reasonably priced spare setup to order online ( or a store that will ship)? The one the RedVN shows above will cost $558 Canadian Loons to get to my door.

Does Amazon Prime work in Canada? I got a new Genesis G70/G80 spare with tools delivered for $220 US; I then had to buy the correct size tire 135 70 18 instead of the 135 80 18 Genesis spare tire. It wasn’t cheap .... but I hope to sell the Genesis tire locally.

We have prime, but the content of the two stores is very different. I don't see any Genesis spares at all.

Thanks to the OP and everyone else who contributed their experience trying different wheel and tire options! I was able to find an 18x4 wheel from a 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe and had Discount Tire install a brand new Yokohama Y870B 135/70R18 spare tire on it. Found a new scissor jack with accompanying tools in a 2010 Hyundai Elantra at a junkyard. Total with tax was $246. That's a lot cheaper than going with the ModernSpare option which is $440 before tax (including shipping). The spare fits without any issues. There may be a very slight difference in how the floor sits on top of the spare compared to the original foam insert, but the difference is virtually imperceptible to me.
