Flat tires on the Outer Islands?

What type of assistance can I expect from Tesla Road Assistance if I get a flat tire on the Big Island since the mobile ranger has little to offer?
Has anyone temporarily fixed a flat with sealant? Did you tire shop clean out the sealant and fix the tire or did they declare the tire to be unrepairable because sealant had been used?

I don't recall this situation being asked before about B.I. I think this is a question that you are going to need to pose to Tesla Road Side Assistance. I hope you come back and tell us what you learned. I suspect there's also some places on the mainland where the Road Side answer is the same. I suspect other people without a spare in the car on the mainland and B.I. are going to have the same issue/solution. It would probably be a good idea to plan ahead and have a non-Tesla 24 hour roadside service available. You would not want to be still sitting on the side of the highway waiting for a truck to come by on Monday morning, eh?
