Anyone know the P/N or the price for the M Mobilty kit?

I took out my spare tire today in an effort to get some weight off the rear so my wheels wouldn't rub. I have driven without spares before, but thought maybe the M Mobility kit might be a good idea to get.

Not sure of the weight of it though? Maybe it's close to the spare at 42lbs?

Any thought on this?

Just so you know...

As an FYI, the spair tire is an integral part of the rear crumple zone on the car. As a matter of fact, it is the front line of protection for your fuel tank (a good thing).

Chances are, you will never have a rear end impact that is so hard, it would rupture the fuel tank, but you never know. At the track, I ALWAYS keept my spare in place (till I got a full on fuel cell) because there is a good chance of spinning and hitting the wall hard going backwards.
