True, but I think that's going to be the least of my concerns of stuff that could be stolen - a spare I can lock on fairly easily. It's the stuff on my roof rack like surfboards that will be tough to secure.
As it is, I have a spare fuel tank in place of the original spare and need the space inside the vehicle for storage.
