I don't know the size of the spare but it is not the same type tire the car came with. What page in the owners manual mentions having an amg spare.

My and my friends E55 (both 2000 model) have black cast aluminium 17"wheel w/Continental Sport Contact 235/45ZR17 spare (no 50mph max since it is a ZR tire)<p>

'99 has AMG others get a black spare

From the sounds of these responses, the '99 model has the full AMG spare whereas the other models only have a regular temporary spare tire?

2000 E55 Spare

I have a 08/99 2000 model year E55.

It has a 7-1/2x17 black wheel, with a tire which is marked 50mph max.

It also says "do not exceed 12,000 miles".

It looks damn good to me. The problem of replacing any of four different tires in a puncture situation doesn't have a real good answer.
