Subaru had the better idea when their cars carried their spare tire over the engine under the hood. My '87 wagon had that and it had a nice big storage box area under the cargo floor.
I'm seriously thinking of removing the spare from my new '17 OB, leaving it in the garage. Then a puncture kit and 12v compressor would have plenty of room to ride along with first aid kit, extra warmth clothing, and what all else.
One thing I won't be doing is a change to runflats.
The spare, or better a full size wheel/tire could ride up top on the car but fuel mileage and some would say looks would suffer.
