|SRTViperDude||No, the tires that came from the factory are not run-flats. So you will either have to find a donut spare that fits or purchase a factory rim (expensive, last I checked it was between $500-600).|

Spark with 'run flat' tires?
I have been trying to find a donut spare for my 2013 but the bolts are too short for most spares. One tire shop owner said (over the phone) that these might be run-flat tires and okay to drive until I could get them repaired.
I make a loooooong trip across the desert 2 or 3 times a year, so having discovered that I have no spare is kinda "harshin' my mellow, man."
Are these 'run-flats'? Does anybody know?

|SRTViperDude||I always thought you needed a TPMS tool to reset the position of the sensors once rotated. At least that's how it was on the Corvette, the tire shop I used didn't remember the position of the wheels when changing tires (front left/right got swapped) and the OnStar report showed a low tire pressure on the front right tire when the front left was actually low. The dealer had to reset this with a TPMS tool and the horn honks when the sensor is registered. Not sure if this is different on the Sparks.|

|chrisvy||Yes you can do it yourself. The TPMS won't be effected.|

It's time to rotate my tires. Can I do this myself? I don't think they need balancing right now. But, I'm just wondering about the TPMS.
