As Ralph stated, the MX-5 doesn't come with a spare, so we get a kit with a can of goop and an electric pump, but you don't have to hook up the can if you just want to inflate your tire with simple air.
I have a tiny electric compressor I travel with on all our road trips, and also a can of Slime Spair. Was "caught" with a flat in our car in the middle of Wyoming on a Saturday morning last July, and this tiny compressor, took it from 0 to 30 PSI within four months, and was able to find a service station to fix it (yeah luck). Does not take up much space and a lot easier than pumping up a 285/25/R19 tire by hand. And when we take a different car on a road trip, that little compressor always comes along. Stays home for around town driving for always AAA and similar.

Found A 17" OEM Wheel Option!
Rumor has it the 6-speed manual is on it's way for the 2.5 liter engine, so I'm starting to plan for a newer Mazda 3s. But there isn't a 17" wheel option for the 3rd generation Mazda3, only 16" and 18". The 16" size has an almost non existent summer tire selection...
I had 16" rims and tires installed at Discount tire today. Using the Discount tire card I was able to get 10% off entire order plus I was given $120 credit on the crappy Dunlop tires.
Future tire purchases should be much cheaper and the car rides much smoother with less cabin noise. I...
I'll need to replace the tires on my 2016 sTouring 5-door sometime this year.
I think I've narrowed it down to the Michelin AS3+ and the Continental DWS06. From what I've read I'm pretty sure I would prefer the driving dynamics of the Michelin but comments about a dip in mpg (I've read from -2...
