I'm currently travelling at least 8 times a year round trips of around 600 miles using country roads with parts where you do not see a gas stations for 20 miles or more. I do not feel risky those trips without a spare tire. Again every person is a different universe and I can't claim that my opinion is the "best" and the "only one" (I'm not the president ). My opinion, in this case, based on my experience is just another of the available possible ways to resolve one problem: what to do if you get a flat?
Doesn't that goo stuff ruin the TPMS?

I insisted on a spare tire, because the last 2 flat tires I had were 1 dented rim and 1 cracked rim (2 different cars).
Goo in a can won't help you if rim is damaged.
Now that I have a spare, I know I will never need it.

Reviving a dead thread, but I got my spare tire kit in my stow n go well. It took a month to get the tire as they are out of stock everywhere. Fits perfectly. We take road trips that put us out in the middle of nowhere (15, 40, 395) and having a spare for the trip is a huge comfort. I've had multiple flats in the past that could not be fixed with sealant (hole too big, sidewall puncture, etc).

Thanks. Just wondering how far can you drive on that tire? Suppose you are on an out of state trip spanning several states, can you put that tire and complete your journey and change it after reaching your home town?

You probably won't want to drive on the inflatable spare tire any farther than you have to. Most people would get the full-sized tire fixed or replaced as soon as possible since it would be taking up extra space in the van (the full-sized tire won't fit in the stow and go well or in the place in the back where the inflatable spare can be stowed in some vans).

The owner's manual says to have the full-sized tire repaired or replaced as soon as possible. It seems like a reduced speed (50 mph) is usually recommended with a less than full-sized spare as well.

According to the owner's manual, "The tire service kit (goo) will provide a temporary tire seal, allowing you to drive your vehicle up to 100 miles (160 km) with a maximum speed of 50 mph (80 km/h)."

My reason for having an inflatable spare tire would be to have more options if I have a flat tire. I hope that I could drive more than 100 miles on the inflatable spare if needed to get to a place to get the full-sized tire repaired or replaced.

Here are some other spare tire threads for those interested:
