I feel the same way. Some of us bought a mini spare to carry in the trunk with a jack/tool kit. It wasn't until I used said mini spare that I have now replaced that setup with a full size spare. Driving around on that mini was a bit scarry!

For me the thought of having another flat in say Italy or France was not a risk I was willing to take with a spare saver that is good for only 80 kph and 100 kms distance. Full size it is!
