Flat tire solution?

Hey all,

What do you personally use/keep around in case of a flat? M mobility kit or "tire goop" solutions don't really appeal to me unless in an absolute emergency because they sacrifice the (expensive) tire. So far, knock on wood, I've been able to put air in when I pick up a stray nail and have the tire plugged and patched at a shop.

Perhaps some of you have a more elegant solution, like an small aftermarket spare I don't know about? I don't always drive through the safest areas, so simply waiting for a flatbed from Roadside Assistance or AAA doesn't work (plus the risk of damage from any tow). Appreciate the input, thanks!
