Help downtown?

Anybody thats near yonge and st clair area got a spare wheel laying around and a jack?

Just blew a tire and there's nothing around here and I'm from Barrie area. And my car will not fit on a tow truck.

Just thought I'd ask as I can't think of much else to do right now and I know there's good people on here

Frame of the car is only 1" off the ground. Last time I was on a CAA flatbed with air it ripped off my bumper. Even with 10' ramps. And my tire pulled off the wheel completely and I don't want to drive it or manouver it much since its sitting on the aluminum lips of my CCWs

e46 M3s came with no spare and a run flat. i have CCWs on now so they don't work. and it never came with a jack, just the tool kit and a compressor kit for the run flats..

ended up having a buddy come out at 9pm to meet me with a winter rim and tire to get me home.. i cracked the barrel of the CCWs. bad day.

Well it's on air so it goes up. But not high enough really for a tow truck. Not with a flat tire anyways..

Dam days late I don't check here often but I would've come brought you a wheel. Dot worry about the barrel. I'm taking apart 3 piece wheels right now they're like Lego. Just unbolt em, order a new barrel and reassemble. Easy as pie. John at ccw is great he will take care of you.

Nice yeah John is great and too generous if you ask me lol. Vince at HRE wouldn't hesitate to stuff me with a 4 digit repair bill haha.

I think it's only that low parked?
