Nope, just slime and very small air compressor. About 10% of the time.

This as well as plugs.

Well, I have Slime in my tires and had a flat. Found that there were a couple of wide cracks on the shoulder. Slime did not help. It had been a year since I put it in the tires.
Last time I took the buggy in for service, they left a rim and tire in the back. I emailed them about it and never heard back, so I guess it was a sign and I should have gotten a matching tire for that rim.

I don’t, I carry a plug kit, tire slime and a compressor. If all else fails I’ll ride that puppy on the rim until I get back. I have spares but I don’t burn up my extra room carrying one.

I don’t carry any tire fixing stuff in the UTV, but I’m never too far to walk back to the barn for the fixing stuff. If I was a long way from home, I’d probably have plugs, slime, and a compressor.

I just got a spare last week. I’d rather not have to walk back to camp, it’s a real long way.

I have two but don't carry them.
If I need the spare, I call the wife and she comes and picks me up in her Mule and takes me and spare back.
It's only 3/4 mile to back of property and I can still walk that pretty easily if needed.

I do have slime in the tires and carry a small battery powered compressor with me most of the time.
If you allow your ATV/SxS to sit on a flat tire very long, the sidewalls of most tires will crack.

At our place and just about any quail lease I have ever been on, you could be looking at a 5-6 mile walk depending on where you are (or further). I always have plug kit and compressor. Been wanting to put a mount for a mule spare on the trailer to at least have back at camp.

We use a golf cart instead of a utv. We do have two spares, but with slime and a air compressor i think they are not needed.

No spare - small compressor and plug kit. Plus a small power pack for emergency battery charge.
