I'm looking to get some feedback on carrying a spare tire vs. just a flat tire repair kit (ie: small compressor, Slime, plugs, etc). I recently installed the spare tire carrier because I got a good deal on it , and wanted the back end to look a little more finished off. I already carry a Slime tire kit. Just wondering if it's worth investing in a spare & jack. Otherwise, I'm tempted to just cut off the bottom "L" shaped bracket.... thoughts?
