No donut available last I checked

The best spare is to have one of your winter wheels/tires in the trunk. That's what I do when I have longer drives.

Agree. I've enough of my 19's and dumping them. They look nice but they're a disaster.

Wish the tire situation was better or a sport package had been offered with 18's.

Tires and bubbles
