    Hi.

    I just bought a Bolt this weekend and within 18 hours had a sidewall failure flat. Fine, it's the "idiot tax" and I'll be hyper-careful now, but am interested in full size tire solutions given the relative unavailability of the tires.

    Was curious to find out what you did after reading your post here: https://www.chevybolt.org/forum/9-2017-chevy-bolt-ev-general-discussion-forum/28979-full-size-spare-tire-complete.html

    "Still I feel that an OEM wheel makes for a much too expensive solution though. My spare (wheel and tire) was less than half the cost of yours also for a full size (diameter) real tire."

    Sorry if I haven't yet found your posting with the details, but if you could share how you found a decent cheap rim (size?) and tire, I'd be obliged. I guess the replacement tire doesn't have to be the same low rolling resistance which would help a lot.... [It should only be on there for <= 1 month before you get the normal tire fixed anyway.]

    Best, Rick
