Hold the tire and stuff in the wheel well down with a couple of bungees crossed to the tie-down loops from the holes in the donut rim. I can still fit a standard sized carry-on suitcase on top of the tire, and there is plenty of space left in the trunk on the sides and behind the tire as well. On our last road trip, we got 4 suitcases in the trunk and still had room, including the spare tire.
I agree 100%.
