Many brand new cars today are not equipped with a spare tire anymore. Many people don't realize that fact, and it may come as a big surprise when you find out the hard way.
Bethany is outside with John from Red Rocket Auto Tech learning about a new tool that can save you if you get a flat but don't have a spare.

o Sealant is to be sprayed into the tire (through the valve stem) to "patch" the air leak
o Then use the compressor to pump up the tire
