As there cars do not have a spare tire, what do most do if they get a flat? Do you carry a puncture repair kit so you can fix it roadside?

We live in a very rural area and the best auto club could do is flat bed it to a tire store.


Kind of concerned about taking trips in it.

Anyone carry a repair kit and / or a can of Fix A Flat?

The Corvette Z06 guys carry them.

The spare tire well in the V has a pump that can inflate a low tire or send the GM-approved goop into the tire to plug the leak.There is a canister of the stuff on the pump. It works provided the puncture is not on the sidewall (or close to it).

Best regards,

I carry the inflator kit all Vs come with, too, just in case. I take my V on long road trips and want to be prepared.
