    No spare tire

    So who here has given up using their spare tire? As in, whose taken out the spare and put in a computer or a subwoofer or anything else into that space?

    What are you doing about not having a spare tire now? (that's the real question).

    I have free towing through my dealership for the next 5 years. Then I also have free towing through my Sam's Club Plus membership... If I wanted to take out the dinky spare I could. I just don't have any room in the apartment for it and I dare not take it to mom and dad's they want to get rid of the stuff I have up there now.

    I have run flats on my car, so I'm not too worried about a getting a flat, AND I have AMA (Alberta Motor Association, same thing as AAA). I put my amplifier (and might move CPU) in the spare tire well.

    Interestingly, if you drive an old Renault (flimsy French car), the spare wheel used to be housed in a drop-down rack under the rear of the car, rendering it stupifyingly stealable. Nice one Renault.
    I'm not sure if they still make them like that now though...
