Fix a flat (or any fix leak with a can) is good for only ONE thing ... if you have a small hole in the thread area...

THAT'S IT!!!

Now if you have a spare you can easily get out of these situations:
  • Hole in the sidewall
  • Big hole in the thread
  • Damaged alloys/steel rim due to hit (curb or pothole)
  • Tire blowout
  • Lack of AAA or remote area (in the sticks) with no cell coverage.

If you stay in the populated area chance you can survive without a spare but it will take time (waiting towing, or call tire replacement on road $$$) before you get back to the road...

I'm always in remote places so having a spare tire is a MUST!

To be honest, I had no idea whether or not I had a spare in the trunk. I was glad to find a spare instead of fix a flat or nothing at all.

Nearing 40 years of my life, I have never had a tire incident that a can of fix a flat wouldn't have me back on the road for that wasn't a catastrophic, tow-required incident. *knocks on wood*

I'll throw a spare in the trunk on long trips, but carry that can in the glove box all the time. Maybe a foot pump too.
