ok- spares are mostly superfluous these days- unless you live in a construction zone with a lot of nails and screws in the road- modern tires don't go flat like they used to- and the leaf is not made for the highway, so you will most likely never be too far from home- and with AAA you won't have to engage in that most dangerous car activity, changing a flat on the shoulder- and how do you know the can won't work?- your question suggests that you anticipate being stuck in the desert a thousand miles from nowhere- which is not the case-

If it helps new Corvettes have no spare tire as well as Shelby GT- 500 and other higher end cars. Eliminating the spare reduces weight which help performance, economy or in the Leaf's case will let it go further on a charge. My advise is get a tire repair kit similar to what I posted above and keep a close eye on your tire pressures and you will be fine. I haven't had to put a spare tire on along the road side in many years.

Both of my Leaf's have a hidden compartment in the trunk with an inflator and a bottle of fluid for flat tires.
