I don't see how 35lbs plus the weight of the tire saves any weight.
Not sure where you're seeing "35 lbs plus the weight of the tire"; all I see is "30% lighter than the traditional steel donut spares."
My concern is that if it fails a test mounting, the "10-day money back guarantee" could be meaningless, depending on the cost of return shipping.
Some years ago, as part of renovations to my bathroom, I needed a new medicine cabinet. The kind that mounts entirely on the surface of the wall, below the mirror, with two sliding doors on the front. The kind that is virtually extinct today. Nothing wrong with the mirror itself, or the outer shell of the cabinet, but the entire interior was rusted out. On a rather confusing website called "homeclick," I bought what I thought
was a new mirror with that type of medicine cabinet. What arrived was just the mirror
. They were happy to supply me with an RMA number. Probably because they knew that as soon as I saw that I'd spend more on return shipping than I'd be getting back in the refund, the RMA number would never get used.
I ultimately ended up disassembling my mirror/medicine cabinet unit, cutting the rusted-out cabinet interior free, and fabricating a new interior from stainless steel (and I had to fabricate a crude bending brake in order to do it). And the mirror, still in the box it was shipped in, remains in my office to this day, a reminder to make damn sure I don't buy another expensive white elephant with an even more expensive return shipping cost.
