Yeah it's completely fine to have an empty trunk and spare tire well, but if you get a flat you'll be in some sh*t.

I've heard this before on here.
AAA does not, normally, come to your roadside location and repair a tire. That's assuming that it's repairable. Even if they show up with a "box truck" equipped with a tire machine and balancer, which I have seen, do you want to pay an exorbitant price for a piece of crap Chinese tire?
Or they tow your car to the nearest tire shop so that you can purchase an, undoubtedly, mismatched tire and be on your merry way.
Where I live, cell phone service can be, well, non existent, when you get away from the metropolitan areas.... Have a nice stroll...

I think that I'd continue to carry a spare around.
Or you could get a set of run-flats. Probably be around $1200...

Just less weight. I mean it's not like it's gonna help. But just to look cleaner. Without the tire in there the mat dont sit in there right so I might cut some ply board and make a Mat myself. Cuz I usually don't have anything in the trunk besides tool box and jumpers.

that ply wood will prob weigh as much as the tire... a donut doesn't weigh enough to make a difference.. maybe take your tool box out and leave the mat in there for a clean clean look

I'm not really worried about the weight necessarily. If I need less weight when I go to the track I'll strip my car

hmmm 2 comments above you said for weight.. now not worried about weight lol... i think leaving the donut in there since you cant see it anyways would be best. then your trunk mat floor will fit good and you wont have to make one...i might be missing what your trying to accomplish here lol

I don't really know. I'm saying like I don't want much weight but if I do I'll easily take it out. Spare and jack is a hassle to get out. So to be quick I wouldn't have it in there. Wood won't weigh near as much as spare, jack and stuff.

How often do you have to go through trunk inspection?

your trunk must be different then mine ahha mine is a floor you lift up and have a sunken down part where my wheel and jack sit... pretty easy to take out... only reason I would take it all out is weight and I would leave it bare. no carpet no plastic pieces on the sides, no jack no tire no tool box just completely empty... other then that id leave it as it is, looks cleaner and nicer all or nothing

I took my spare out and what not a long time ago. But I did it to offset the rifle rack and ammo case I have in there now

Get a scooter or bike haha driving that little a day is hurting your car more than the weight of the spare tire
