For a few years now, pretty much every car company has quietly stopped including spare tires in new cars.
It's so prominent, the odds are your next car WON'T have a spare tire. And there are three main reasons why car companies are getting rid of them.
1. It's cheaper just to include a kit to patch the tire.
2. The weight from a spare tire hurts your gas mileage.
3. And our favorite reason of all: You probably don't know how to change a flat tire anyway, let's face it . . . so you don't really need a spare.
If you DO get a flat, you'd probably just call AAA or a towing company, get towed to a garage, and THEY'D put one on.
And the CAR OF THE FUTURE will either be self-driving, or flying . . . we're still waiting . . . so THAT won't have a spare tire either. Basically, your spare tire days are over.
