lol that works sometimes but as someone who used to bust tires for a living, that shit sucks, and honestly doesnt really work all that well. a tire plug kit and a pump is the best way to go. but if you slice a tire your done for.

I've had those freeze on me in the past and was stuck. Nothing beats having a spare tire, even a smaller one that doesn't match the rest of the tires.

well i know on my truck i have 15 inch rims.... and the spare is a 16 inch rim im not sure about the older trucks but the newer ones have a different rim size on the spare. so putting the biggest tire as a spare when he buys tires isnt going to work. i need to buy a fifth rim and tire so i can have a full size spare again. oh and by the way fix a flat is a tire changers worst nightmare
