I’ve had a few flat tyres over time; sometimes they just happen randomly, though in my case, sometimes not. Having gone through the inconvenience of changing to the spare wheel, there has always been the gnawing thought of another unforeseen flat before the incapacitated wheel could be fixed, slowing me down.
So why this thoughtless whingeing about the inconvenience of having to drive safely on a space-saver at 80km/h for a few kilometres or even a few hours when driving on a fullsize spare suddenly necessitates extra caution? Unless vehicles were already carrying two fullsize spares, I’d even say two space savers in the place of a single full-size spare is a less worrisome thought in the case of a flat far away from help.
