Well, the fourth 'tire issue' in the last few years (screws, sidewall cuts you name it between 2 vehicles). I've decided to rig a full-size spare for my new 2006 Civic. Bought the tire at tire-rack and will hit up the dealer for an alloy wheel. Bottom line is that I don't want to worry about dealing with the donut, especially since I'm moving to a relatively more remote area of the country (currently in NJ). I can fit it in the spare tire well...it will stick up into the trunk a bit but I can find a nice cover or piece of carpet to put in there. Also will plan to include it in a 5-tire rotation scheme so that it doesn't dry rot in the trunk.
