Friend of mine accidentally tore the sidewall of a tire on his new Boxter S on a trip. The tire wasn't saveable with an inflator and sealant can because of the damage. Luckily, he had a mini spare in the car, so had to drive several hundred miles at 50 mph. He believes in spares, even if they are the cr*ppy mini spare.
Our Alfas all have full sized spares in them, replacing mini spares.
