Spare setup on WK2?

What kind of spare are you guys running that got rid of the runflats and went aftermarket?

Please advise.

Nah. We do flat bed towing over here when all 4 tires are lost/stolen.

Something that fits in that spare tire location would be nice, thought someone would have some info at hand, size etc. I will just measure it up myself. The stockers surely do not fit in there. I could do a roof rack and put a stocker on my roof? Bet that would draw some attention.

Found a spare kit or something online 82214063. I dont like the look of it....plus that nonsense with these not fitting upfront and having to remove 2 wheels in order to put it on if you have a flat in the front....
