Den, take a read of this it might help. This has been discussed before in relation to Spare Wheels, I believe in the J11B the Tekna+ has the Bose Sub-Woofer where the Spare Wheel could fit (Tekna is an option) but the other models have space. A Jack does not cost an Arm & Leg anyway and as Gel has mentioned you could us the RAC in the U.K. - Dave :)

Told A work colleague about the problems you can run into with no spare wheel the other month, wont happen to me he said not had a puncture in 5 years or more

He was driving home from a trip on the motorway, tyre pressure in one tyre started dropping so he pulled into the services and added air ( Thought it was a slow and that would get him home ) sets off and pressure drops rapidly.
He pulls over but there are roadworks and he has to stop in a coned area.
No problem he thinks I will use the repair kit, gets everything out and starts the process only to discover the problem was his valve had cracked, the kit cannot repair that.
Rings the RAC who tell him they can not recover him from the road works he needs to wait for the free recovery.
20 Minutes later free recovery arrives and puts him on a low loader and takes him to the next services from there he has to ring RAC to take him the rest of the way home.
Once home he had to buy a new tyre and a tyre pressure valve expensive day that a space saver could of prevented.

What my point is do as many others do and buy a space saver kit, when you come to trade in take it out of the car, not only could it make your day better should you get a puncture in a part of the tyre the glue kit can not repair.
But don't forget once you use this kit your tyre and valve is no good.

Some will say when is the last time you had a puncture ?
The real question is when will you get a puncture and where will you be when you do get one.
Could you imagine being late on a winter cold night no phone reception in the middle of no where and you get a puncture this kit will not fix.

I guess it will never happen to you

If you really do not want to carry a spare and your happy to only have a repair kit then I would recommend you buy a slime kit and replace your Nissan kit.
It will give you the same benefits as the Nissan kit but it will not damage your tyre and is TPMS safe, you simply wash it out when the puncture is being repaired.

But as the Nissan kit it can only repair certain punctures.

Bought a full kit off ebay inc space saver and foams cost around £150 but we now have piece of mind. Unless your puncture is a pin prick the gunk in the tub wont seal it.
