obtain a 24" breaker bar and a high quality 17mm deep socket and keep them in the trunk. You will one day need to confront bolts that are put on by a maniac with an airgun (no matter how vigilant you are when they work on your car) and that bar will get the bolts off. And if you or someone who drives the car has less than powerful arms, periodically break those bolts loose and torque them with a torque wrench, as above. The cross bar wrench will not do the same job. I've frequently worried about my daughter getting stuck in that situation, good spare, no way to get the flat one off.
