    Discount Tire
    National chain I think

    But will match Costco prices

    I recently had a flat on my X - it was completely flat. I called Tesla service and they dispatched a tow service with a spare wheel/tire. I was off and driving on the spare wheel within an hour of placing the service call. Later that day I got a call from the service center that now had the flat tire. They evaluated it and said it was not patchable, but offered to have a Tesla ranger come swap the wheel with a new tire. I paid $423 inclusive of tax.

    The tow driver indicated that many more high end cars no longer have spare tires in the car, but because the other manufacturers don't have spare wheel service, it always involves a tow.

    So while I have dreaded getting a flat - the overall experience and time involved was not much more than if I had a spare and replaced it myself. I would have had to buy a new tire anyway, this ended up being much simpler than using a spare tire and then separately buying a new tire.

    I was quite impressed with the overall experience.
