Not quite what I had in mind

Due to a looming road trip I was curious as to suggestions on what to do if I blew two tyres as the car only carries the one traditional spare. Apparently I could either use duct tape to make a brand new tire or use metal coil springs. And what about 100,000 elastic bands? All are very neat — if terryfing — but I might just plop a second traditional tyre in the boot just in case.
