    Got a nail in my tire the other day, was wondering if anyone knows whether the service center patches tires, and how much it costs?

    Usually high speed rated tires cannot be patched in a legal sense. Worth a try though... You may have better luck at a tire shop that deals in the brand you have.
    You can save yourself some time by just giving the SC or tire shop a call first to find out.

    My service center does not patch tires. They will send a truck out with a loaner tire and rim, but you have to handle your own tire repair and return the loaner tire back to Tesla.

    I am glad to hear they will provide you a loaner tire and rim. I was wondering about it when you get a flat. Thanks!

    Great information, good to know. I thought as much. I'll probably end up taking down the tire myself and haul it over to American Tire Depot to get it patched. Luckily, it was a slow leak, so I did not need to emergently plug it.
