My gas cruze came with a compact spare, I sold it for $100 plus traded for the ECO trunk liner and inflator kit. I then used $75 of that money to get a closeout 16in rim from tirerack.com(same size as my cruze came with). I then just paid the tireshop to install one of my old tires when I got new ones.If you want a spare that you can drive on like normal you need to get a full size spare with a properly sized tire as well...
I feel much better knowing I have no speed or distance limitations if I ever do get a real flat. If I did it again I would have bought a matching 1LT 16in rim so I would have had a spare matching rim as well. I also like having the inflator kit, I've used it a dozen times to air up a tire(goo bypassed).
