‘19 Giulia Ti Sport Q4
It’s not being ”careful” to carry a patch kit and spare with RFTs, it’s paranoid, especially in an urban environment like metro NYC. It’s like taking your own charcoal and grill to a restaurant “just to be safe.”I appreciate all the feedback.
I understand both sides of this issue - both have their pluses and minuses.
The bottom line: I have run RFTs on my Corvette for 15 years on 18 and 19 inch wheels.I live in the NYC metro area so the roads are tired and pothole ridden.Never had a blowout - just a nail that was repaired. Truth is, to be really careful even a driver with RFTs should (theoretically) carry some kind of flat kit AND a spare for a that catastrophic hit.
My original question was for options especially since I have chosen to run "goflats". I will carry a kit but would like to have an actual spare in a perfect world. Trick is finding a temp small enough not to compromise our limited trunk space but that will still play nicely with our ABS etc.
As for the Firestones - they change the handling and ride characteristics of this fine automobile for the better.
No comparison to OEMs.
