Have you beat Izzy, my car that has a spare is a Mazda Miata. Little car, itty bitty spare. It doesn't have the smallest trunk that i have ever seen but it ranks right up there. The hardship of driving cool cars is very little trunk space.

i've got a late model mid-sized car. it has lots of trunk space. it also has a lot of spare tire well storage space under the trunk space.

it could hold either a full size or doughnut sized spare tire, but alas, it comes with neither. it has a 'system' that is supposed to re-inflate the tire while pumping in a sealant.

next week i'm buying a spare.

These are really nice. A friend of mine has this set. This is the offroad kit, they also make a car/light truck kit. Mine is the Walmart el cheapo, but I've gotten pretty good with it.

I've plugged a tire in less than ten minutes, counting airing it back up, without removing the tire or even jacking it up. (I only run the tires at 10 PSI when I'm in the woods).

Those are great tire plug kits. I've been carrying them in my Jeeps since the mid 90s. Have used them quite a few times. Easy to use and they have saved my bacon more than once.
