    Wondering if anyone has a spare rim (with or without a tire) laying around that they'd be willing to sell.

    This whole nail in tire situation makes me want to have one tucked away in the garage. My replacement tire needs to be ordered, so I'm driving around on a tire with a nail that keeps going soft until Saturday.

    Would be great to have a spare to throw on if this happens again. I have my set of original run flats still, so just a rim would work.

    Thanks!

    Jason you could try putting some Slime in your tire to hold you over until your replacement comes in. Having a spare ready & waiting isn't a bad idea.

    I do have some in my hatch. I just may do that.

    Thanks Mark. Honestly not sure what size my rims are! Embarrassing!!

    I believe they are 16 though. I'll check.

    Why can't you get a plug kit and plug it?
