is not having a spare tire ok?

so i know the e90 335i sport package here comes with RFT's but im planning to get m6 reps from ********** and probably generals. but this means they are not RFT's and the e90's dont come with a spare. is there anything we can put in our trunk to help a flat tire, maybe the m mobility kit. If i do use the mobility kit, how useful/hard is it in repairing a tire?

Don't worry, I moved it for you.

I ditched my RFT's so now if I'm going on a long trip I'll throw a spare in the trunk along with some tools, but for everyday driving I don't worry too much since I can always have someone bring me a spare if I really need one.

Yea, I think he throws in a oem wheel and tire since he's got 19" Rials. Most people who run standard type tires will carry a M-Mobility kit or something similar with them in the trunk.
