What are the odds. Hopefully you are back on the road soon

Don't forget to add this to the list of issues to go over with the dealer before picking up your Camaros

Mine didn't come with a spare. I asked when they showed me the trunk! Is not having spares a new GM thing? Just wondering.

I think no spare is a Camaro thing. I saw spare tire on the options list.

Fifty years from now, when you're looking back at your life, don't you want to be able to say you had the guts to get in the car?

No spare w/ the 20" rims, on the SS. You can get a spare w/ the "smaller" rims.

Actually when I was ordering my Camaro and made sure I ordered a spare, the guy that worked there that was taking my order said more GM vehicles are going towards having no spare (as standard issue) and people don't realise it until they get it or need it.

Well, mine does have a spare, but its a slow leak so I am airing it up and headed to the tire shop after work...

One cool thing that I found out tho... Seems my tires are the "run Flat" techology... Its only got 4 pounds of air in it now, but its not flat! Arent supposed to run them more than 50 miles like that, but I wouldnt go far anyway.. I will air it up to normal and watch it on the way. Should be ok!
