I just sold my 2019 Insight and have a spare tire, spare tire toolkit (with all tools), and foam insert for sale. Came from 2017 Civic. $180 OBO.

How does this fit in the insight, do you have to change all the foam as well I really want one to keep the wife save those repair kits that blow in that tell is not good for larger damage.

The Honda Civic (2016 and newer) spare tire, foam organizer, and tools all fit perfectly within the Insight's trunk. You'll have to remove the foam organizer that came with the Insight. The spare tire fits in its place.

This is the screw down holder that should come with the spare tire kit. It fits in the Insight as well.

I bought one from a guy who had wrecked the front end of his 2020 Civic. He didn't think about saving the tiedown and spacer. I ordered those 2 pieces but two places were out of stock so I didn't re-order. The tire doesn't rattle around at all so I decided I didn't need the the tie down. The foam fit perfectly and I used the empty slit for the electric battery gadget and worked fine. The tire and foam are slightly higher than trunk floor but I have the trunk tray so no unevenness is noticeable. Do I need the spacer for anything else other that being part of tie down for spare? I got really lucky with an never used kit or tire for $75 and a 2 hour drive each way.

That's a great price! The spacer is two sided allowing the same bolt to hold down either the compact spare or a full size wheel when you get a flat. That's its only purpose. I'm surprised your spare kit does not sit flush under the trunk floor, mine is flush. I know when a full size wheel is in there it will be slightly taller than the trunk floor.

I got really lucky finding it and glad to hear I don't really need the spacer. The height of foam is just a tiny bit high and isn't noticeable.
