    I am curious on what, if any have you planned for the what if "I got a flat tire" I was thinking of getting run flats but no mfgr makes the sizes of my tires (19 and 20). Also since the ferrari does not have a tire monitor, it would be useless.

    I spoke to tirerack and they have a kit (ContiComfortKit) which includes a compressor (plugs in the lighter) and comes with a liquid that will seal the tire. It cost $79 plus shipping.

    Any thoughts ???

    can you purchase a spare tire ???

    Your 360 was sold new with a tire inflation kit, if you don't have one you can order the original from the dealer or Ricambi. I hear the kit has worked well in the past. The 360 was also sold with a spare tire option as I understand. My solution is to call USAA and have the car towed if I get a flat, knock on wood, crossing fingers it never happens!
    Also send a pm to Mr.Bock here on Fchat, he is a friend and mounted his own tire in his 360.

    Hope this helps.

    I have AAA and also purchased a ContiComfort Kit from Tire Rack for $80. It has a water base jel and can be washed off the interior of the wheel vs. the TireFlat product.

    I know I will not have to use it, but just in case

    Those repairs don't work very well if the puncture is anything but a nail. A larger hole, and you're either hitch hiking or you've called a tow truck (hopefully, you're in an area with cell service).

    The spare precludes much luggage though. Not a good solution, but apparently the only one.

    New product from Duskybird enterprises.

    A Continental spare tire kit for the rear of the 360 and 430.
    I'm thinking about 2 different styles.
    1. Stock style
    2. Challenge style
    This will look *****en!!!!!!
