Gee, never thought the question of carrying a spare or not, meant that one was to be changing the tire and for $100 + a year, is it really worth it, when you consider all the other benefits of having road hazard insurance? The towing service alone, is pretty much worth it, with one tow paying for many years of premiums. The even pay the service call for a mobile mechanic coming to your driveway.
In fact, I think we're way ahead of the game after many years of travel and I do everything possible that I can do for myself, at this age.
Anyway, I hope the OP has found his tire cover by now, with all this other discussion taking place.
