On the way home today, my front passenger tire blew out. Ouch. Sucked. I pulled off to the shoulder and lucked out when one of the tollway courtesy patrol vehicles stopped to help. Very nice man swapped my flat tire for my spare. Only, the spare was flat.
It all worked out. I have towing covering, and I bought the warranty for lifetime repair/replacement. I was just three hours late getting home.
I did ask at the tire place if they could fix the spare. They answered with a definite no.
Now, was this because fixing spares is a heinous task they wish to avoid at all costs? Or is it literally impossible to fix a spare tire? And whatever the answer is, where do I go from here? Who does repair spares? Or sell them?
Also, please feel free to include your wretched flat tire stories. You know they’ll make me feel better.
