Re: [DML] No spare?

My daily driver is a Pontiac G8.  On the base model there is a spare
included.  On the higher end GT and GXP's they still have the space for a
spare, but they were not included with the car. AAA is my "spare" Much
safer than trying to work on tire changes on the side of a highway in
rush-hour traffic.
