So how many times in the course of driving135k miles did you use a spare tire?
3 times...
  • Went out in the morning to find a flat tire in my driveway. There was a nail in a tire, probably from the new house under construction down the street. That was the easy one.
  • NYC in the pouring rain. Hit a huge pothole that was filled with water, blew out a sidewall. Thankfully I had a full size spare for the 250 mile ride home.
  • Rural Vermont, on a cold (10 degree) and snowy winter evening. Thankfully I had ski gloves with me to handle the metal jack and lug nut wrench. Was back on my way in 15 minutes rather than waiting hours for an AAA truck to come and find me.

Checking the air pressure (60 lbs.) in my spare, every 6 months, is difficult.
The plastic surround is tight against th tire and I have to fold down the seats, to be able to wiggle the tire out.
It's at this point that I can flip over the tire and access the valve stem.
Just get one of these and you never, ever have to flip the donut over to check tire pressure...


I installed this in just a few minutes....
