In my previous car, I retrofitted a full sized spare to replace a compact spare. In my new BMW, I plan to eventually use a snow tire as a full sized spare if I travel more than about 50 miles away, which isn't often. For me, only a trip to expensive British Columbia or over the mountains to eastern Washington state would justify it for me, not locally. Maybe not even south to Portland, Oregon as it is fairly urban much of the way. It might depend on your circumstances. It's nice to be able to drive at full speed, which could be a 70 mph speed limit.
