I am struggling with Issue 99 Step 29, which is fitting the spare tire and wheel into the recess. I have worked at this for a number of minutes, trying numerous angles and some slight force but I have been entirely unsuccessful in getting the spare fully into the recess. It really looks to me like the tire is about 15 percent too large for the opening. Is there some method to get this to sit down into the recess? Perhaps I need to reheat the tire to soften it so that it is more pliable? Could I have gotten the wrong size tire to begin with? Yes, It is truely the spare as was indicated in the issue numbers and I was careful to segregate the spare from the other four wheels and tires. Perhaps others have had a similar struggle with getting this to fit inside the recess. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

It is a tight fit but with a good deal of 'wiggling' it will go in.
