This tire gave very close to the factory OD for the rear tire, which is what you want to match due to rear differential consideration. You won’t see the compact spare tires listed, just call and ask.
18" is it. A lower cost alternative is a Maxxis T135/70R18 tire. It's not as good a match as the Bridgestone T145/70-18, but is less expensive. You order it directly from Maxxis You should also look at Post #87 in the same thread if you need low cost hub ring adapter sourcing info.
