Is it perfectly legal to drive without a spare wheel, as long as you're carrying a can of that tyre filling spray stuff?

Cheers. Guido.

You don't need one at all if you don't want one AFAIK.

Bit daft not to have any way at all of replacing or repairing a tyre though, so a can of slime is a good idea as you say but not compulsory I don't think.

spare is not needed, also if theres not one on MOT they cant fail you on it, but do advise you to get one.

The can of stuff is not required, usefull, but what if a tyre explodes or tears???
