Well, I never expected it to happen to me, but I was driving the other day when all-of-a-sudden my rear driver's side tire blew a sidewall. I was about 30 miles outside of town. So, I pulled out the scissor jack, lug wrench, and handle. After turning the scissor jack handle in, around, out, in, around, out 121 times, I was finally able to get the tire off. When I went to lower the spare, I was in for a new surprise. 5 Michigan winters had made sure that the tire was rusted in place. So, I banged on it with the lug wrench about 10 times, and it finally broke free. I finished lowering it, installing it, and lowering the jack (around and around 121 freaking times again) and I had yet another surprise. My spare was almost flat. So, I turned around and headed back for town very slowly. I got to a gas station with air, and found the pressure in the spare was 20 psi out of 60 psi!! Luckily, I just bought the tires a month ago, so the tire store is replacing it under warranty. Moral of the story - CHECK YOUR SPARE TIRE PRESSURE!!! You never know when it will come in handy. And if you have the silly sealant/compressor joke sitting in your trunk - you better pray you never find yourself in the situation I was!!!
