That spot is empty on my tool box as well. Perhaps the manufacturing templates used to make the inner-portions of these foam tool boxes are used on other Honda vehicles that require the extra tool. Although not exactly the right shape, some Honda tire changing kits include a tool to lower, or crank down, the spare tire from its storage position under the vehicle. Since we don't need that, our tool box is missing that piece. Even the owner's manual drawing of the tool box shows it missing something in that some indentation. I'm just speculating here, but that's my thought.One question, the tool holder seems to be missing one tool . If you look at the lower right hand side of the styrofoam tool holder there is a longer cut out for something.
Anyone know what fits there?
I don't mind paying for a cheap new tire, but where did you find a rim so easily? Did you call tire shops in your area? I don't need it to match my other wheels, but I also am not a wheel guy, so I don't know how to ensure it matches on bolt pattern, etc.I'm Still looking for a good used tire. The rim was easy to find...
To help you best, I need a little more information. I see you have a 2017 Ridgeline. Where do you plan to store/mount your full-size spare? Do you want to use the factory alternate tire mount location in the bed (pictured below)? If so, you will need to be careful about how tall your tire and rim combination will be for the retaining bolt is very particular about the angle at which it's inserted. Plus, the Ridgeline's systems are sensitive to having different tire/rim sizes (i.e. everything needs to be the same size).I don't mind paying for a cheap new tire, but where did you find a rim so easily?

There's no way to put a full-size spare in the Gen2 spare tire service tray. Only the Gen1 has enough space in that storage spot to accommodate a full-size spare, but just barely (if you increase the size just a little, it will not fit).Yes, I'll put it there... unless I can figure out a way to get it into the spot where the donut goes... but it seems others have tried and failed. My only complaint about the front location (besides being in the sun) is that the bolt holding it is pretty small diameter.
Sites like this seem to have all the information, but if I were getting a used wheel for example, I'm not sure where this information would be... doesn't seem like it would be stamped on a wheel like it is on the tire.
The Ridgeline "is wound tight," as the say. There's two ways to look at it:This is one of the things that bothers me the most. This damn truck (any year RL) is soooooooo picky on anything done to it, being repaired (better use only Honda parts ) or if you can find any aftermarket stuff for it. SUCKS>>>>>>>>>>
It's the new auto-manufacturer trend. Their analysis shows them that very few people get flats anymore, but to be safe and have peace-of-mind, they include an inflation kit. --My 2015 Challenger SRT is the same as your Civic Si.-- I don't know where they're getting their statistics, but I've gotten multiple flats on every vehicle I've owned; well... except for my Ridgeline where I've gotten only one flat so far ("knock on wood").It could be worse... My 2017 Civic Si (and dozens of other vehicles) doesn't even have a spare - just a bottle of goop and a 12-volt air compressor. Due to the design of the Si's exhaust, the spare tire pan in the trunk is not deep enough to accommodate a spare tire. Honda's solution is a kit that includes a wheel, tools, spacers, and a new new floor panel. The kit and the tire retail for about $800 and eats up a significant amount of trunk space.
