Did think about carrying a spare too but then is have significantly less trunk space
I picked up a front wheel and a Michellin Pilot SuperSport tire for a spare, but figure that I'll be able to hopefully get back to the tire in most cases using the mobility kit. Mine is mounted to a Pit Pal spare holder in my garage.



My concern was that when I had my first flat, the only way I was able to get going was my other car. The car had been shipped from one dealership to another out of state. I think that the tire had already leaked and the mobility kit had been used, so the valve stem was jammed. In another year or so, I won't be able to just grab the two seater as I'll be shuttling two kids to school.
