I recently had a flat tire while driving out in the sticks. I started hearing this loud “TAP TAP TAP” noise that turned out to be a good size bolt that went straight into the tire. It had a fender washer on it so the head of the bold was sticking up above the tread. I couldn’t just leave it in. Luckily I was able to pull over at a popular tourist stop (Sahalie Falls). I had to borrow a pair of pliers from someone to unscrew the bolt from the tire. Then started the “SSSSSsssss” sound. Oh and there was no cell service out there. The car has one of those compact donut spares, which I was able to get on without any major trouble. Luckily it was more or less properly inflated (I mean who ever checks them?). It got me to thinking (duh) about carrying a basic toolkit in the car. Looking on Amazon, there are literally dozens of choices priced from about $20 to $200. I know the tools in those kits are probably of poor quality, but they’d be better than nothing in an emergency. What do you consider to be the essentials for a roadside repair kit? I’m thinking: Adjustable Crescent wrench Slip joint pliers Needle nose pliers Philips and flat screwdrivers Strong zip ties in various sizes Flashlight Blanket or tarp Wheel chocks Maybe something for the tire jack to sit on like a block of wood Work gloves Warning triangle(s) I’m open to suggestions. Feel free to go nuts.
