I took my spare out last weekend and liked the extra trunkspace so much I haven't put it back in yet. Not sure if I will or if I'll get me some fix-a-flat, or a patch kit. I've got AAA which makes me feel a little better.

I'm also not sure what I'd do with a 15x8 if I happened to get a flat tire with somebody in the passenger seat and used the donut.

I'll bolt my amps to my wheel hub and drive around with a big rectangular tire. That or the golf clubs. What's this "spare" you speak of?

Fix-a-flat, cell phone, $3 HF flat repair kit, luck. Between those 4, I should be covered for 99% of the possibilities. Hell, I've probably only had 5 flats in my 23 years of driving, so I'll play the odds.
