When you put it back face the valve stem down so you can check it without dropping it.

In Russia we carry our spares.

In US OF A, we carry our spares.

It's a good idea to carry a spare matey.

I had to take off my spare due to new pipes i had installed. Anyone know how to turn the light off on the dash that senses the tire pressure for the spare?

Take the cluster apart and remove the light is the only way I know of. I dont have any TPMS so the light stays on all the time. A little annoying but you get used to it.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

Put your TPMS sensors in a pressurized vessel under the rear seat

They're somewhere in Pennsylvania now. I sold them with the rims
The light isn't bad and the inspections people don't care as long as it isn't a CEL.

wouldn't go anywhere without a spare. had to use it more than once. punchered a tire with a nail clipper,handle from a bucket,screws,and nails. you'd be supprised what's laying out there on roads. could probably make up a new post on what people got flats from. might be interesting.

I considered taking the spare off....but not anymore....makes more sense to have it on, than to not ...what I might end up doing is probably even getting a spare but with the exact kmc enduro's that I have.

Yeah, I've been considering a spare tire carrier plus an extra 16" alloy - seems like a pretty useful addition.
