Once you get beyond the question of Toyota changing the specification of this car between when buyers have signed the contract and when the car is to be delivered which is bad form in my opinion we come to a question of just how necessary a spare tyre is these days anyway. Tyres certainly do seem to be a lot more reliable than they used to be, heck with my sports car I have never had a spare and even when I have had a flat tyre I found that because of its light weight that I could still safely drive the car far enough to get it fixed. Anyway how many drivers out there have really needed their spare and how many would be happy with an “inflation kit” (spare in a can) as an alternative?
