Can you fit 8 tires inside of a 4 door Focus

I want your thoughts.

Situation:
I am going to pick up some winter rims & tires, the buyer has 2 sets. Do you think I can get all 8 tires in the back seat and trunk? I will have a passenger in the front seat (and a small dog). The back seat will be open and the so will the trunk. It is a 4 door sedan (not a wagon).

What do you think? Can it be done, safely, so I can still see why I'm driving?

I have one full size tire, I am going to put it in there tomorrow night and "measure" some things up and see what would work best.

you should be able to fit three, maybe even 4 tires in the trunk (I have a sedan, it's bigger than you think, the trunk) and you could probably put four in the back seat...... or if you need more room, try this if you haven't figured it out:

sorry it's a bunch of pics, but you see..... alot of us didn't know how to do this

so these two show what to pull on (they evaded my eyes for like, 20 minutes )


Then this shows a spare for "reference" as to how big it is compared to the trunk

then these two show what it looks like with the seat-backs down and the seats folded up

You got them all in the back seat and trunk? None in the front seat? Trunk closed and all that jazz?
