Who wants a donut?
But I don't have much choice.
Happened just as I pulled out and turned around at work. So there must have been something in the gutter that I didn't see.
I mean, I need new tires anyway, but dammit...

@Mark-Tucker If you're going more than "to the next exit" you'll want to put that on a non-drive wheel. The differential will thank you.

@Mark-Tucker Any tire can be a run-flat if you try hard enough
@MM54 Yeah, that's probably not a bad idea. Can't get in to get new tires until Saturday, looks like. I just hope a 27-year-old donut can manage another 40 miles at all. It'll all be 30 mph or less, at least.
(See, City of Portland, this is why your new by-the-license-plate parking permits are bullshit. I have another vehicle, with four new round functional tires, that I'm not allowed to park at my place of employment because you have this plate number on file.)

@Mark-Tucker Umm, yeah don't think they can patch that... Shit happens I guess. I continue to hope to never actually use my 16 year old donut.

I do cos all I've got in the trunk of the Kona is a factory fix a flat cartridge and compressor which would have been fuck all use in this situation.
Actually if I do the frunk modification to store the charger maybe I can get one, there's probably a range penalty for the weight but not likely anything I'd notice.
@zipfuel Nope, fix-a-flat would not have fixed this flat. It's an inch and a half long gash clean through the sidewall.

@Mark-Tucker I got a Sentra spare for the Z, it's lighter and the car is low anyway.
