When it happened to me in April I called my GM extended warranty and asked for a flat bed. They sent it and loaded my Sol onto it. They took me to my dealer who put on a new tire. Flat bed was covered by my warranty.No spare. But you do have a pump...Your not going to leave your car on side of road .Do you call for wrecker or flat bed...?:willy:
I was thinking the same thingI've heard run flats have come a long way. When my tires need replaced, I might try some high performance run flats. I've heard there are several tire lines that ride pretty well and are not as heavy as the old run flats. Just my $.02
I read somewhere that you are restricted to 50MPH, and that the range is also restricted, I want to say 60 miles, but I'm not sure.. Then you are right, you have buy a replacement, I don't think run flats are repairable.. Throw away tire for a flat..:willy:I looked at run flats too. Sounds great. Till I learned that once they go flat you can drive on the inner "spare" at reduced speed, for not very many miles, then you throw them away and buy new ones. And they cost significantly more, and you are basically carrying a spare tire around inside each run flat all the time.
CAA has been my fall back for decades, I travel to the states often and like the bail bond protection as well.My warranty expires in early Sept of this year. I just joined CAA for exactly this reason. Wherever I am in North America I want a number that I can call get a flat bed.:thumbs:
