It's been four years since Tesla began shipping the Model S. I've owned mine for three years. I've done many long-distance drives, and am nearing the end of my car's warranty period (time to buy an ESA). The one thing I have never done is carry a spare tire in the car. I live in New Mexico, where there are no service stations. If I get stuck somewhere, heaven forbid, I'm in deep sh**. Especially up in the mountains somewhere. No Ranger is going to come for me. It can take weeks to get a Ranger to come to NM for service. They're extremely booked. I've contemplated buying a fifth tire, mounted on a Tesla wheel (used, prolly) and keeping in frunk, perhaps a bit deflated so it fits more. I am curious where owners stand in Aug 2016 in terms of the spare tire question. Hence, this poll, and hopefully a productive discussion afterwards.
