Yes, I agree that these vehicles have spares, and it is ideal that a spare be available, and I would hope CT does in fact have one.

True need for a spare that warrants the user to keep one on board in high challenge environments are usually limited off-road. Otherwise blow-out is fairly rare with general use. And I’m not arguing for not having a spare here. However, based on info we know regarding a spare, or lack therof with the CT at this time, you may expect to not have one provided through Tesla and may need aftermarket accessories to address this issue.
Uh... I wasn't pointing out vehicles with spares. I was offering my opinion that most Cybertruck buyers wouldn't be using their vehicles for off-roading (and therefore those buyers wouldn't need a full size spare.)

Also I didn't suggest that the Cybertruck would come standard with a spare. In fact I don't think it will.

What I did point out was that it could be possible to design a spare wheel/tire that would be small enough to carry, perhaps, in the "diaper" area, or perhaps in the vault's in-bed "trunk."

Blow-outs are rare now, because tire construction has improved so much over the last few decades. But flats are not rare. in my five vehicle extended family we've had four on-the-road flat this year in the Dallas area. Three of them were side wall punctures that couldn't be temporally repaired. We had to use spares or get towed.

It would be great for Tesla or the aftermarket industry to develop and supply an "extra-small" spare that would cost less than $400. A single tow out on the highway, away from home, could cost that much, as I discovered a few months ago.

My logic is pretty simple. There are undoubtedly features that are going to be left off the truck in order to get it to market faster (and the general perception among my friends and colleagues is that the truck is late). Wireless charging would not be useful to very many people out of the gate.
it won’t be standard

just like any of the other accessories

Ok, let me re-phrase my response then...My vote is that wireless charging won't be offered as an option in the first generation of Cybertruck for the reasons I mentioned above. How's that? :)
