Risks of burst, and subsequent issues, out weights benefits.

But, it was (not sure if still is) a practice of off-roaders here in UAE to use the spare wheel as an inflator, many years back (as in the 80's).

Spare tyre as air tank
« Reply #1 on: 23 January 16, 16:10:19 »
There are many videos out there,mainly crazy Aussies in their outback, using the spare tyre as a air storage tank by overinflating the tyre to above 150 psi. Then they use this air to fix popouts and to air up the running tyres as required. I know the dangers of over inflating tyres in our summer weather but this is an intriguing idea.

Anyone has done any such craziness over here ?
