Spare tire?

I'm getting rid of the crapyears replaced since I have a bubble in one of my tires. My question is what do y'all do in preparation for a flat since we don't carry spares? I know AAA and all that would be an option but I didn't know if there was anything anybody was doing to be creative or whatnot. I don't want to have a flat and then be stranded like 2008SRT lol

I have "Slime 7005" which is fix-a-flat and air compressor in a compact kit. Haven't had to use it yet, so can't say if it works or not.

just a heads up....fix-a-flat will ruin your TPMS sensors.

but to answer the OP...I bought a replica front wheel. when i go on long road trips (or anything further than someone being able to go by my house, grab my spare & bring it to me), i just put it in the back.

2010 fully loaded
Performance: ProCharger D-1SC, DMH cutouts, BT Catch Can, 180 tstat
Other: Toyo Proxes STII 315/275, slotted/dimpled R1 Rotors & Stoptech pads, Full interior LEDs, HID reverse lights, rear fog light harness, CHR550 w/ front facing camera, liquidomes, 5% tint, Shorty antenna, debadged, SRT8 badge on 1/4 panels, SRT in the lower grill, tinted tails

i thought about one of those...but i have never had a flat that was repairable. it is usually from hitting something big that blows the tire out.

Fix a flat will ruin your sensor, but if you are stranded it is a good option.
