Awesome, I will look into getting one. On the other hand, any of you have experience with the tyre gunk? Is it any good?
Tire gunk = tire compound, right?
What's to like or not to like about the compound of a spare tire?
It should not dry out too fast, but since there's no UV light, wetness en drying or big temprature changes. It wont dry out as fast, as the tires on the outside.

Not sure which brand tire i've got, but since the irish Kia factory tire is Maxxis. Mine will be as well. Maxxis is a known offroad tire brand. So i have good expactations, based on the brand.

They're proud enough to mention the tires on their site: Maxxis Compact tires

Side note: Factory tires are almost always worse, than tires which are store bought as the same brand+type. More mm thread depht and better compound with the same brand+type. See also link OEM Tires

No, tyre gunk = the aerosol tyre sealant used instead of having a spare tyre.
I've never used any except in tubeless bike tyres so I can't comment on its merits versus a spare (space saver)
A, didnt know that.
As a former car mechanic, i dislike the gunk.Removing gunk can be a time consuming work. Therefor pricy for the customer. Maybe the gunk is now better developt, that it'll stick less at the rim. i don't know.
