So sitting on an offramp on westbound I70 in rural Martinsville, IL this afternoon on Saturday. Can't get a Lyft or Uber, AAA said that they can't get anyone to tow our Tesla Model 3, Tesla says they are trying but can't get anyone for maybe 3 hours, nothing really nearby, battey now down to 24%, freezing and snowing outside so have the heat running. now sitting at a gas station chatting with a zany and fun counter guy who also makes the pizzas. Finally got a call from Tesla, truck on the way in 3 hours, AAA calls back they finally found someone. 6 hours after getting a flat, which looks like it can't be repaired, were in St. Louis 152 miles away though thankfully towards our destination which is Denver Colorado coming all the way from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Tesla service not open on the weekends here so have to wait till Monday, Tesla can't say if they have the Perrlli sotozero 3 tires in stock or not until the service center opens, nobody nearby carries that particular tire, tire rack can't ship until the middle to end of the week. Any suggestions to get back on the road? Just slap any old tire on or replace both front tires with all season or different brands winter tires? Could maybe pickup the correct tire in Denver at the tire rack distribution center when arriving there.
