Back in college, my brother had a 240SX that he did what you did. Took out the spare tire and made a custom subwoofer system. Then one night on an old MS hwy, he hit a pothole and blew out his tire and cracked the rim. He had to wait almost 2 hours for a tow truck. That is why I would never go without a spare.
I decided to go the route of a full size tire spare, that way I'm not relying on those pitiful donut tires. Picked up a 17" rim for $155 and a Hankook tire for $136 installed. I plan to do a 5 tire rotation every 5000 miles, which basically breaks even for longer tire life and buying 5 tires instead of 4.
If spare in trunk has sensor your tpms light should not go on. Our car has dumb sensors, not wheel specific.
