Wife: 'Driving home and a big bouncing rock humped the car, I have a flat'
Me: 'Rocks aren't sharp, they don't give you a flat'

She limped it to the side of the Gardiner somewhere, waited for Volvo SoS tow truck, guy installed the spare, didn't check the pressure , she drove another ~40km home local. I checked the pressure at night, and it was 37.5, on a 'INFLATE TO 60PSI' spare )

Warning, Spoiler:


I don't think the tire's salvageable....



I hope the spare is salvageable, as it'd probably have 50 local km on it by the time it's all said and done.

see if you can find another spare off a salvaged car from the junker... might be the cheapest route
