In my 12 years of driving I've gotten maybe 2-3 flat tires, although I would always prefer to have a spare on hand just in case. And I would prefer to change out 2 rims (might take another 15 minutes) then potentially be stranded for 3-4 hours waiting for AAA.
The general concensus was that the standard 17" mini spare that came with many Mustangs would not fit the front of a car equipped with the V6 Performance Package. Although I never had the oppurtunity to try it.
I know the potential for rear end damage when using different diameter tires. But it is intended as a Temp only and at reduced speeds.
The std mini spare issured by Ford on many of the Mustangs models is a good 1" difference in dia. So I figure if Ford does it, it can't be all that bad if you limit it to emergency use only, as directed. On the other hand, depending on the circumstances, I too would change out 2 wheels, to be safe.
