Do YOU have a spare?

Do you have a spare tire for you 930? I don't have a compressor so the stock spare really isn't worth keeping I think..

Go get a $10 compressor that runs off your cigarette lighter, throw it in the trunk

I couldn't see the point of the spare since P say it's only good for the front. I carry a compressor and tire sealant.

Really? Is that in the owners manual? I'll have to dig it out.

I got a rear flat in the middle of the Arizona desert 50 miles from nowhere during the summer . Let me tell you, I put the da*n spare on and blew it up, anyway, and hit all of 40 mph until I got to Yuma where they just happened to have a new tire that fit. If you are driving your 930 away from home, you better have one

I went with a 996TT spare to clear the Big Reds. Fits right in the stock location.
