I have the space saver spare (came with the car), but on the rare occasions I take the car more than 100 miles away from home, I put in a full size alloy. Takes up a little more room than the space saver, but worth the peace of mind. It's usually just me on day trips, so I never have luggage.
Thankfully (knock on wood) the last few flats I've had were found in the driveway (typically after the car has sat the night).
