Good points everyone. For me, I guess the best compromise is a tire repair/inflation kit. The compact spare is a more expensive but also needs a jack. Also, from what I have read, only 15% of tire...

Door Lock Code Options

I am aware of the code to automatically unlock the doors to avoid the double handle pull. Is there a code to automatically lock the doors upon exit once a key FOB is no longer detected?

Of course your mileage will vary on driving style, but I would anticipate 2/32 seconds would be approximately 25% of however many miles you would normally get out of the tire.
