RFT to non-RTF conversion. What should I carry in my trunk?

I'm getting rid of my two months old 225/45/18 OEM Goodyear Efficient Grip RF in favor of a non-RTF Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum.
As you know, there is no spare tire with the RTFs so what would it help me the most if one of my new non-RTFs gets into trouble? Besides AAA of course

These are both temporary repairs until you can get the tire patched.

Or, just go without anything. When's the last time you had a flat?
