Only 2 out of 3 new vehicles come equipped from the factory with a spare wheel.
The reason some manufacturers no longer offer a spare wheel as standard is due to a legislation change in 2012 making it no longer required combined with tougher emissions laws. As an alternative a can of tyre foam is supplied along with a tyre inflator good for the smaller nail puncture in the tread. However if there is further damage to the tyre or wheel then the tyre sealant will not suffice.
If you’re prepared enough to have a spare wheel, make sure it’s in good condition and that your jack and any locking wheel nut keys are stored with it ready to use in an emergency.
