|onelunger61||I always carry a spare, mostly because I have rotten luck and am often out of cell phone range. It recently occurred to me that I did not have a lug wrench in the car, which would have made the spare useless anyway.|

My spare experience...
Out for a drive with my spouse recently, when road debris I failed to see shredded the right front.
We both got out to survey the aftermath and wife asks, “Well, I suppose you have a spare.”
“Of course”, I replied. “Do you think I’m stupid?”
“Well, where is it?”
“Right there on the left front!”

I thought the spare was part of crash safety , to help crumpling from being hit from behind?

The spare tire is just a spare part to get you home. If have the skill or the willingness to do a road side tire change you will be on your way ASAP. If you choose to use a tow service for what ever reason that is ok too. We are all have one thing on common! We love our Alfa Romeo.

If you call AAA, or anybody, to change a tyre ... please remove your car enthusiast badge and leave it at the door as you leave!

AAA will only change the tire if you have a spare, they won’t fix it.

Due to Murphy's law, you will get a flat tyre the day/week after you remove your spare
