Hi there, yes, still interested. Can you send pic and do you still have the necessary hardware to 'hang' in the trunk? I'm in Colorado, so need to check cost to ship as well. My email address: courtroom74@hotmail.com

rx8s dont come with spares for future reference because it throws off the perfect 50-50 weight distribution I would suggest not getting one but I am a pure performance person so it is up to you but a can of fix a flat would do the job if you want to get something that would be an alternative to a pricey donut or rim.

I do not think the reason for not including a spare and consider it a "accessory" is a 50/50 weight distribution. A passenger, or a piece of luggage would then render the car unsafe. The reason this happens ( no spare) is that the lawmakers allow it to happen, allowing car companies to save money at the expense of public safety. A flat tire and no spare could mean death in certain situations.
