My husband just bought a 2003 Xterra. He took the spare off the bottom to put a trailer hitch. Later he got a flat and used the spare. Our question is can you get a donut size spare tire/rim? And can you put it on the roof?

You can get a donut (aka temporary) spare tire so long as the bolt pattern is right and it clears the brake calipers. Check with online retailers and/or a local tire shop.

You can put it and just about anything under 250# on the roof.

I’ve had my spare on my roof for a few years. I took it down recently because it makes a ridiculous amount of noise and is beating the hell out of my second roof rack. Replaced the first one because the tire beat it up so bad. Yes can be done but make sure it’s very secure
