I know that the recommnedation is to not buy tires older than ~5 years due to UV damage, but how long should a spare last in the trunk or under the car? There isn't any UV exposure there.

And run-flats have their own issues.

I have never owned a set, but from what others have told me they have a harsher ride.

There is also the availability issue... when it is time to replace them, can you get them? in your size? what are your options? what do they cost?

Does AAA get the truck there any faster?

In over a million kilometers of driving, I have had only 2 flats... and both times I was on my way within 20 minutes.

In 2005 it took 3 days to get a replacement tire in to the small town I lived in... and that took some calling around.
