    Hi

    One can argue this either way.

    Pro. You have a flat you can continue, less disruption, less risk.
    Neg. Weight affecting the drive, boot stuffed, cost, would the glue stuff solve the issue anyway.

    On balance I’m going to take the risk, hope the glue stuff is enough and anything more then it’s a breakdown/Abarth call out.

    Another factor is the individual miles. If this is a Sunday low mileage car then the risks are lower and that could tip the balance towards no spare. If you are a high mileage driver commuter with a job that’s vital you never miss a meeting the answer could be different.

    Only my thoughts

    Thanks for input A.

    I err on the side of inconvenience on this one.

    Trying to find a spare saver if one exists.

    Information.

    I removed a wheel and it did NOT fit in the boot. :whistle:
