on the way into work, i notice my ride is feeling a lil rough, but not too bad. i made it to the commuter lot with no problems, but when i get there, i notice my tire is about half flat. DAMN! and now the rain is coming in, and the closest gas station doesn't have a pump. i'm screwed. i gotta drive a least a mile on rim. hope it doesn't get bent.

Yeah, I remember your system... He can fit a shoe box back there... ;)

I wouldn't take the chance tho... Have someone bring a spare or an air compressor. GL!

I did that with the two cars I owned before the IS. Decided to do other things that don't take trunk space with this car.

i had one of my friends drive me to pep boys and picked up a cig lighter driven air pump. worked great. however the 2 hours at merchants gettin the tire patched wasn't fun.

now that work has finally slowed down, i'm redisigning the system for access to the spare. for situations like this

2 hours, ouch! I got one of my RE040s patched last fall and on the way to Kings Dominion, it blew @ 75 mph... Thank god nothing serious happened and I was able to shift lanes safely. I never took it back to NTB although I should've... Oh well, not using stock wheels anymore so it's all good. Glad to hear u got things worked out.

i prefer not to use fix a flat cause of the stuff it put in your tire, the cig. lighter air pump worked very nice. i got it in the trunk under the sub box(but where i can get to it). so hopefully i won't have to create another thread about this.

If you have this problem again you'd better bump this one not create a new thread. :pissed: ;)

I was until I learned how the search button works. ;)

Looks nice bro! Don't know where I was when you posted but I checked and I never posted in the thread so I must have missed it. Can't wait to see them in person. :approve:
