I'm carrying fix-a-flat and a prayer. But a full-sized spare will fit if you don't mind the extra weight and aren't using the tub for storage/subwoofer/gun collection.

At a price, sure. It's not free once you're out of warranty. Neither are failures deriving from aftermarket components. I found out the hard way when I called for help after a battery failure on my '03 CTS; they showed up promptly to tell me it wasn't original to the car and thus wasn't covered. I declined the $150 estimate and headed to AutoZone instead.

I bought a spare OEM rim from an on-line dealer, TPS and jack parts from GMPartsdirect, and 5 new Avon A/S from Tirerack and still saved money over buying 4 F1s or an EMT snow tire. The bumps from going over expansion joints also disappeared.

After injecting fix a flat latex in your flat tire, you can kiss the TPS good bye. That may be okay if you disable the interlocks that limit speed when there is no tps reading.

Ain't no quick way out.
