I don't have my car yet, so I can't go outside and measure it. Actually, It will be either a rabbit, geo, swift, justy, or some other tiny car.
Here are the dimensions. 13 and 5/8 is the widest point.

Are you saying it's a rectangle with those dimensions? You could probably squeak it with a Metro. The 12 inches dimension shown below doesn't have bolts at the bottom of the round edge, so it doesn't need to be 12 in.
