Lawrence,
That depends....
I have heard (but never experienced) that is it expensive to replace the kit.
Of all Leafs that I have had/seen, only one still had the kit, I do not know 
where
The kit went on the other ones (all were used cars, private purchase)

If you have roadside assistance, you can get a "free" tow home whereas 
replacing the kit is expensive
And I think it also ruins the TPMS in the wheel, so you will need not only to 
fix the tire, but also get a new TPMS,
Now the costs really start to add up for that little convenience, instead of 
waiting for the tow truck....

To further open up my options, I managed to find someone selling a complete 
wheel.
The tire is pretty worn and old, but it is perfect as a spare wheel, sitting in 
my garage.
If I get a flat, I can either arrange to bring the wheel to the car or the car 
to the wheel
Before I have to take the damaged tire to the shop (or patch it myself as I 
have done a couple times now)

Hope this gives some perspective,
Cor.

If you are stuck on the side of the road it is better than nothing.  Lawrence
