Tire Condom — 'Change a flat without ruining your clothes'


Say what?

From the website:

    Flat Tire Concierge

    Change a flat without ruining your clothes

    Until now, it's been almost impossible to avoid ruining your pants or shirt when confronted with a flat tire.

    The Flat Tire Concierge keeps the grit and grime away from you while you do what needs to be done.

    Inside its compact storage case is a mat to kneel on, a pair of protective gloves and a full-size elastic tire tote


    that slips over the tire (up to 31"-dia.), letting you handle it while staying squeaky clean.


Tell you what: far too many people get killed standing by their car waiting for assistance for me to ever dream of trying to change my own tire.

Me, I'm off the interstate faster than you can say "Call AAA."

But if you're of a bolder disposition then by all means this item might have your name on it.
