That really stinks. Does the tire need replacing or can it be patched//plugged?

What size and type are the tires on your Mini ?  I have some 16" and 17"  run flats laying around. Maybe I can help you out...

The only warranty that would be useful in this situation is the Tire & Wheel Protection which is an extra-cost item.

Joanne's welcome thread said she just bought it.  I'm sure CF would get her fixed right up.

Roadside protection came and put the donut on.  I had no idea what "run flats" were. LOL  They are regular tires.  I was able to just go to Pep Boys and get it patched for $10 002  Which is a good thing since the tire is virtually brand new with the car.  I don't have the extra tire coverage. 102

All this road work they are doing on Executive Drive enabled me to run right over a bolt!

Roadside Assistance, yes.

New tire replacement for free, no.

Luckily it was repairable.   023
