Smart move, just knowing that in 20 minutes you can be back on the road sells me enough on keeping the spare. I hate depending on roadside when its something I can easily do. Only in the city can I see myself without a spare. Roadside reponse times are greater then.I take my Outback on huge trips into the mountains. I've had flats and will never go without a full-size spare again.
It's not something I've had to do very often and it's never been a problem. Would just like to have the top freed up for my roof top tent and Skybox as-needed. I keep bikes on the back daily.Whoa.... I hope you're good at bench pressing 65+ pound overhead!?!? Maybe consider aftermarket hitch spare tire mounts?
The national product manager Dominick Infante said it is a full size spare (7:05).
