    I have a 2005 Pilot. It has the small spare and I'd like to replace it with
    a full-size spare. Will a full-size tire fit on the rim that the small
    spare is on or do I need to get a different rim?

    You'll need a full size rim.

    What do you think? Can't see the difference in size by looking at the
    spare rim compared to regular one?

    No differnce whatsoever! The donut is what, 2 inches wide? I'm sure
    you can fit a 7 inch wide tire on there. Although that thing about
    making it hold air might be an issue, and the ride would probably be
    pretty rough after the rim ground through the belts and tossed the
    thing. But other than that, I can't think of a thing.

    </satire> for those of you who couldn't see it.

    Right after we bought our Pilot in mid 2003, I ordered a steel wheel and
    tire from Tire Rack... recall it cost less than $150.00 at the time. Fits
    right where the spare is and has proved its value. Do it right..not half
