Default Spare Tire Requirement

My last Cruise Moab was 2005, and I know it was a firm requirement to have a spare tire at that time. I typically load my spare on my trailer, but don't carry it on the trail. I do have an extensive tire repair kit, including aircraft safety wire, tools, CO2, and a large selection of plugs in order to stitch and repair a cut sidewall. I also run beadlocks with my Irok 42's.
I have been wheeling Western Colorado and Eastern Utah for the last 25+ years, and am President of HiCountry 4Wheelers (Glenwood Springs, CO), a 42 year old 4x4 club, with the same spare tire requirement, which we have amended in the last 5 years to include "... or the ability to repair".
Although I could strap a spare in my cargo area, I would prefer not to. Can I bypass this requirement?

That's a good question given the tire sizes folks are running on buggies and built rigs these days. Your Cruise Moab committee happens to be meeting this evening and we'll kick the topic around and get you an answer back.

Thanks for asking,

We did discuss it briefly but came to no consensus. My take on it is that the intent of the requirement is to not be a burden to the group should you have a tire problem that could be solved with a spare. I will punt this one to Art, who is in charge of vehicle safety inspections.

I do understand the logic of the "group burden minimization", but by the same logic, one would have to carry a LOT of extra parts! I've had more steering arm studs shear off than cut tires over the years, and don't even get me started on Birfields!!
I build a lot of Toyota based rigs, and a common wheel bolt pattern was important to me, so my Dana 60's are 6 on 5.5, I am also a member of Moab Friends For Wheeling, so I have a lot of local friends, in case I need serious assistance.
I understand that making exceptions can be a slippery slope, I'm just trying to reassure you that I have considerable experience with this issue, and hope that we can come to a mutual agreement that will satisfy all involved.

That Steve is kind of a renegade... Just look at his posture when he's in the zone:
