I'm been making 300 mile trips lately. Hate that I have to stop twice to charge...been waiting 18-months for my Model Y LR RWD...I digress. There is no direct route, so I have to take a few 2-lane roads to get from "A" to "B" and back. Not too bad, about a half-hour or so. Today, I was slowing for a stop sign when I heard a click, click, click...what could that be stuck to my tire. I pulled over to take a peek. I didn't see anything, but heard the dreaded "hiss"...after a few quick four letter words, I hopped back in and drove it like I stole it. Yup, caught a nail or something and I'm in the middle of absolutely nowhere. My passenger brought up the tire pressures...it was showing 38 (I normally run them at 40 cold). A pinch and twist of the map showed a small town with a tire shop about 12 miles ahead. Pulled in just as it hit 25psi...and they only work on semi-tires. They aired it up for me at least. I popped the frunk and contemplated putting in a plug. Got my plug kit, got my super cheap harbor freight air pump, got my jack plug, got my tire iron...*sugar*, wrong jack. What the "F" was I thinking putting a bottle jack in my frunk. Jumped back in and drove it like I stole it yet again. 15 miles to the next town...a big larger with a few tire shops. Didn't think I was going to make it so I stopped at a circle K for air--what was I thinking. Of course they don't work...I've never found one that does. Tried the HF POS air compressor and I was losing air faster than I was filling so that was a bust. Took off again and was down to 25psi again when I pulled in...they said it would be 2 hours before they could look at it. They aired me up (went to 50 this time) and pointed me down the road a few miles. Made it...they could help me out, but--this guy said tires with foam can't be patched. I insisted he patch it and that cutting the foam was fine...it took a bit of talking before he agreed. I pulled out my jack puck and he said, you don't need that, we've done these before--NO WAY dude, I put it on and made him use it. I noticed the care in the stall next door...the lift was pressing on the body and bent it up...good luck opening your doors. It was a screw and missed the foam inside. They did have to cut a little bit to make room for the patch. Didn't take that long. The foam isn't anything special...you would find it in just about anything you pack for shipping. $40 later, I'm back on the road. Now I have a scissor jack and dual piston air compressor being delivered in two-days...before my next trip, where I'll be taking the slightly longer but more populated route. I will be buying a spare when my M Y is delivered. I hate to imagine how long I would have waited for Tesla assistance...if I could have even got a cell signal.
