Have never had a pickup without a spare, 99% of the time not hauling much weight so the spare tire plus mounting hardware should help add some weight to the otherwise empty box. Mush ado about nothing here.

It's easier to get forgiveness than permission!

Haha I wont even drive anything without a spare. Then again im pretty young still and I swap a tire on the side of the road pretty quick. I also just like being self sufficient.

I always carry a spare.

My car/truck insurance policies provide free road-service (including spare-tire mounting).

Most likely, I would have to "drop"/produce/provide the spare. That would be no problem on my side-mount 1954 pickup, but, I'd have to crawl under my 1954 Suburban (a pain, but, a 5-10 minute job).

You would most likely have a few hours waiting on side of the road to get the spare out for the AAA guy.

I'm doing my best to keep a spare tire. We still have areas with no cell service. I have trouble thinking of leaving my truck on the side of the road waiting for the next guy to come along with a trailer. It's also a race legal way to add a little weight way back there behind the axle.

Old enough to know better, too young to resist.
