I watched a video on youtube (Frugal tesla guy) where he had a flat tire and he still drove the car. The tire didn't loose all air of course. It was slowly leaking so it could be monitored while driving. How low can the pressure go and still be able to safely drive? I understand that road condition, speed, etc will make a difference but let's assume it is on a paved road and conservative (about 45mph, 73kmh) driving. I'm curious because I thought I should call road service right away and not drive at all. BTW the youtuber was getting new tires the next day or so anyway so I guess damage to the tire was of no concern to him.
