    Christmas Eve, a brisk 31 degrees, and I am fucking pushing my car to my apt. Another FUCKING FLAT TIRE. Can't see shit out, so I don't know why it's flat, about 12-fucking-hours ago all tires were at 35 PSI, I drove the car 3 hours ago and it was fine.

    "Karma is a bitch" can shove it up their ass, I guess the more money I spend on the needy and the more community service I do just means the more tires will fucking go to hell. If it just lost air (which I highly doubt) this will be the luckiest break I get this season.

    I'm done. I'm buying a helicopter, at this rate it will be cheaper than driving ANYTHING with 4 wheels and tires.

    That sucks. I just had that same shit happen, ran over two nails on monday one went flat right away so I was an hour late to work, and the other one was a slow leak that I kept filling up until today. Finally got around to fixing it today. Those self repair kits own. Spent a whole 10 bucks on it.

    oh and it's 12 degrees here, 30 degrees would be summer vacation compared to this shit.

    And doughnuts need to be checked periodically for air. lol. Last winter (and in the middle of the night) I hit a manhole cover on a stretch of unfinished road and instantly killed a tire. Changed it but the doughnut was flat, but good enough to get to a gas station for air. Fun times....

    Havok at least keep a can of flat tire fix in your car...

    It's not the tire ass, lol. Didn't you pick up a bolt in your Azenis? It's just shit ass luck for me, I have a jack, but no spare--In case you didn't know the del sol spare was the most pathetic spare in the history of doughnuts.

    Road Hazard can only be bought if you purchase 4 tires, at this rate I will just buy fucking 8.

    Okay, so what is it that you are picking up in your tires that is making them go flat so often? Is there a lot of construction in your area? What tires are you using? And what is so bad about the Del Sol doughnut? Kept properly inflated, it's only supposed to get you to a repair shop. Please ignore all those dumbasses who drive around with one doughnut for several days. A doughnut is /= to a full sized tire. It's a very temporary fix to help save your good rims.

    Again get a Triple A membership...

    I would think that a Solid Rubber Tire would be a little on the heavy side. If it was solid rubber. I would also think that it would have to have deep grooves before hitting flat rubber.

    There developing this new type of tire where it doesn't have a sidewall, and the thing is supported by a series of plastic spokes like thing and on the outer parts is rubber. Its really cool because it would totally eliminate flats, reduce hydroplaning because the tire could have holes in it to just have the water go right through it, and you would never have to inflate them. In one of the newest car mags (automobile car n driver or road and track) had an article about them. Really cool stuff.


    Nick, the del sol one did suck, so I have a teg doughnut in my trunk. Still fits in the well (if you still have carpet back there, not me) and is a 14 incher. Most of the year, I just keep a full size wheel back there. That way if I get a flat, i don't have only 50 miles or whatever it is.

    i feel your pain homey .... was out playing in the snow in the insight tonight
    went out into the baseball field at the middle school was rounding the bases on the diamond and i guess i popped the bead on my RR tire :(
    changing a tire in the snow with shitty hand tools sucks ass
    especially on an insight where you need to remove the pannel and hope you dont lose one of the screws that hold it on the snow
