spares are worth it. For the first time in almost 4 years I finally used not one, but two.

I have 2, but only run around with one.. well when I was in the lake i ended up needing both spares. Hell i almost left my only one at home.

and good idea on deciding to get a full size spare. mine came with my MTR's i bought. its also an MTR, its just bald as hell. but i'd rather have a bald full size tire then a small spare with full tread like i used to have.

I'd keep it mainly for weight back there... could make a ballast to go there, filled with sand or something...

a small spare is better than no spare. about a month after i got my 32s i had a blow out and the stock spare limped me to the tire place. oh and when they were fixing the flat i bought a full size.
