Driving to an empty Wal-Mart parking lot: $0 Teaching Colin to drive an MTX in the Mini: $0 Tom doing a burnout to illustrate what happens when you get on the gas too much and let out the clutch too quickly: $0 Pair of jackstands at Wal-Mart: $25 3-ton floor jack at Wal-Mart: $99 Big can of purple Monster energy drink at gas station: $3 Hearing a "pop" when driving back to Tom's apartment and getting a flat tire: $0 Putting the Mini up on said jackstands with said jack: $0 Seeing what actually happened to said flat tire: PRICELESS So here's the funny part. After we got the flat, we headed over to Discount Tire. The Mini had runflat Goodyear RSAs on them, as the Mini Cooper S doesn't include a spare tire. Discount Tire wouldn't replace the expensive runflats with less-expensive non-runflat tires, as that would "defeat a safety feature of the car." However, if we brought them just the wheels not already on the car, they'd install whatever tires you want. So Tom and I put the Mini on jackstands in his garage, loaded the wheels up in the Speed and dropped them off at DT.
