I have two cars with no spare.....2007 SRT8 Magnum and a 2009 Mazda Miata. The Miata comes with a jack (I guess to tease you) and a bottle of goo with a compressor......the Dodge just comes with the goo and a compressor.
Although it seems weird to not have a spare I guess 50 years of motor cycle operation tends to soften the blow of not having a spare.
The two cars and the bikes always travel with a plug kit.....the bikes carry CO2 cartridges as well for re-inflation purposes and (Good Lord,I hope I'm not setting myself up) and, so far, all remain unused.
I had the same tires on my ECO that are on your Diesel OP and never had a problem.......I swear my wife was driving her Malibu into construction sites though......seemed like I was repairing a tire every three months.

Guess it all boils down to have it or you don't........I've been fortunate and I tend to give thanks to anyone who has a in, 'Thanks for picking that nail up so I didn't have to'......heh heh.

Putting the spare in the trunk is a good idea though.....the car knows it is in there and will never have a flat works!

Good luck!
