Did you have a flat or were you just practicing? Or I guess they could be pictures of someone else's vehicle.
I got a flat on the Express Lanes back on March 27. Was cruising at 75-80MPH, ran over bolt or something, then rapid air loss in a couple of secs, air suspension adjusted to RR wheel but felt really sluggish with steering and didn't want to chance shredding the tire and wheel despite having RF. Pulled over, call Express Lane courtesy roadside assistance and swapped the tire with spare.

Pirelli covered the replacement tire under warranty since it was 10K miles.
