T Sportline TS1 spare wheel and tire kit: opinions?

I am getting new tires and thought about keeping the best of the old and buying a wheel from T Sportline and using as a full sized spare. However I do not think it will fit in the under space of my 2018 MX and I don't want to have to store it on the back top, premium space, while traveling. I just saw that T Sportline is offering a wheel/tire spare kit similar to Modern Spare, I think that will fit in that under space. Has anybody looked at that and what do you think? I've just never had a vehicle with a 'donut' type spare before. I have 20" tires now, I guess I don't get how one size can fit all. Thanks.

In all the 100k+ miles I’ve driven I have never needed a spare on the road. I have carried a full-size spare for my Odyssey on long trips (plus the doughnut) many times and never needed it but i have used it many times at home. Once it took a couple weeks to get a road hazard warranty replacement tire. So I fully support the full-size spare. I just don’t see why one would carry it around with you all the time (spoken by the guy who Straps one to a hitch cargo carrier. In my defense the van is usually well loaded and cannon balled 900 miles in a day up or down I-95 on Sundays). Money might be better spent on road side assistance? Tires are dirty and messy to store.
