Probably! I would start with your local tire discount store. They will probably have to special order it.

Yeah, the Junk.....ahem.....the Automotive Recycling Center would be your best bet. Ya know, I can't remember the last time I used my spare(but I do keep it inflated to 60 PSI just in case). Is the spare tire well deep enough to hold a full size tire/spare without a noticeable bulge in the trunk??? I don't think it can(especially the latest gen bonneville with the 17" wheels). Just wondering.

LeSabre too. What about the W-Body'*(GP'*, Regals, Impala) wouldn't their spare tires work on the H-Body?
On my '91 Olds the Spare size is T125/70D/15. I'm guessing that they use a larger 16" rim for the newer H-body'*.

The Service Manuals state that you should NEVER try to mount a standard tire on a compact spare rim. The compact spare uses a narrow 4 inch wide rim.

I seriously doubt it. Although the regular tires will fit in the well, the trunk floor will bulge some. But if you don't mind the slight imperfection in the trunk, a regular size spare on a steel rim might be the answer.
