    I saw one of those when looking around for a car, can you collapse it again after use or is it a single use spare wheel?

    I was looking into these a wee while go. The square ones out of Fords are meant to be good.

    Another vote for the T-max variants, I got an unbranded one of those from Paddocks about 15 years ago and it's still going strong despite much abuse.

    Used to live in the battery box in the Defender and got swamped quite regularly and doesn't seem to have suffered for it.

    I used to do that, I used the first stage of a reg, then an old airline reg connected to it, so I could adjust the pressure Used it for tyres, the odd bit of spraying, this sort of thing. It was good for inflating boats, better than the pump, I’m a lazy sod! Still got it somewhere I think, although I haven’t dived for years.

    Robotstar5, Don't know if the tyre can be collapsed again after being used, I would imagine so. Otherwise its going to be an expensive short term use, I also don't know what life they have in the folded state,

    I did a trip in Iceland and that was what they did to reinflate their big tyres after some offroad driving:

    Another vote for the TMax, I have had one in the Landy for about 10 years, use it to reinflate after offroading
