looking for thoughts and opinions on a spare tire delete. So rather than packing a huge spare around on a factory spare carrier,would a inner tube, and spoons be suffiecient ? Of course on longer trips I for sure pack a fullsize spare, but I do alot of daytrips. I always catch the damn thing on steep inclines and departures, its also a lot of weight where I dont want it. It would make room for a tube clamp mounted hi lift, and a chainsaw when I need it.:confused0006:

I think a fullsize spare, along with the necessary tools to make the change is a must personaly. Ever try breaking a bead on the side of the trail? If you have a catastrophic failure (blow out, large gash) your SOL. You will need on board air. Getting the valve stem out can be a pita (I usualy cut them out). Just a few things to think about.

you could try getting a skinny tire the same diameter of your tires
saves some space and weight
