No spare tire. We carry a portable compressor/tire repair kit in all our cars, as spare tires are rapidly vanishing from the automotive scene:


Did you ask why the car at Oak Brook was roped off? We've been able to sit in and play with some features in cars at both Florida studios, and many YouTube videos of studio visits show people sitting in the cars.

Something about an early beta.

Will take delivery on 19", crossing desert from Grand Canyon to Moab and then to Denver.

Neither our 2015 Tesla Model S nor our 2021 Model S Plaid have spares. Nor does our 2018 Honda Odyssey. Nor did any of my three Audi R8's or the Mercedes SL55 AMG that preceded them. We carry a tire repair kit with a portable compressor in each of our cars. Lots less weight and takes up almost no space. Plus you don't need to haul around a jack and lug wrench.

Yep spare tires going the way of the Dodo. Also tools to fix your car ( my 74 BMW CSI had a beautiful 30 piece tool kit and spare part container tucked away in the trunk lid) also printed owners manuals ( all digital in many cases)

no cars come with spares anymore. We just got a new Prius and hybrid Sienna...no spares.
my 2006 BMW didn't have a spare, although it did come originally with run flat tires.
No Teslas have spares and none of these cars come with run flats.

Run flat tires are an interesting love hate situation. The ability to continue driving after a puncture is the obvious advantage. However, run flats ride poorly, are noisy, and have worse rolling resistance. In an EV, those negatives are magnified by the absence of engine noise, the need for range, and ride and drive characteristics that deal with the penalty of added 1,000 lbs. of vehicle weight.

Add BMW to the list of companies that don't provide spares (although for some models it is an option).
