Last spring I think? Was out in the middle of nowhere and had to change it myself too. Was only a couple years prior my wife got one as well.When was the last time you had a flat? For me, it's been at least a decade, maybe two.
Old school I would run tires until they had radials showing. Then, you betcha you’d see some flats.I wasn't counting offroading. So I should have specified road trips, like the previous post suggested. I have damaged lots of tires off road. I wouldn't bother with a spare or run flats on roads.
I have had tons of flats. I have been able to plug all of them with one being in questionable distance to sidewall. I have however had two Blowouts in less than 12 months. Having a full size spare specially in a truck that I could be towing with is a big deal to me. I don’t care about The cost of it in range. I can‘t fully enjoy taking a day trip with my sport car because it has no spare. I totally get people who have not gone over the edge and enjoy living on it. I am Just not one of them.When was the last time you had a flat? For me, it's been at least a decade, maybe two.
Not fully enjoying means I can enjoy it around 97%; 1% deduction for lack of spare, 1% lack of ground clearance and 1% lack of storage but you will be surprised what 97% can do The question is if that 3% is worth a $70K Rivian or 2% for a $50K CT.Sheesh, I get not wanting to live on the edge, but that's quite the extreme on being conservatively fearful.
@Old Spice, He's asking if there is a way to stop the tailgate from going lower than the bed of the cargo box, in essence to extend the box floor for items longer than 6.5 feet, like 4foot X 8foot sheets of plywood etc. Many pickup truck tailgates in the past used chains with hooks or steel strap flat hinges that stopped the tailgate at bed height. During the CT reveal, the tailgate was shown as having a built-in ramp and the tailgate drops below the bed for the ramp.
I really want thin solar panels on the sliding roof!Also another feature Elon mentioned was another varient of the Vault Door that was lined with Tesla Solarglass or solar panels that can recharge an estimated 15 kiles of range during daylight hours, perfect for going the little extra bit or keep the ac running or just keeping the battery from dropping slightly in the cold. And I think someone mentioned it, but also don't forget the Matte Black option. (Not my personal pick but still cool.) Anyone else have any thoughts or wishes about the color or what they'd choose?
