I was able to replace the tire and drive my Bolt EV home. The video tells most of it all, and I'll upload the driving video later.

Thanks for the update!

Impressive that Bolt can sit for two nights in freezing weather will no ill effects.

Glad your Bolt is back on the road. Mine should hopefully be on the road by tomorrow (on a truck).

btw, if you have time, some photos showing a hatch comparison of the Bolt and C-Max hatch areas with luggage inside would be appreciated. Thanks!

Nice. Some potential feedback, not having seen your other videos, I was pretty in the dark on everything that happened that you were describing at the beginning. If you're going for some decent numbers from a viewership standpoint, you may want to make sure each video can stand on its own with respect to information. If that's not your goal, please ignore me! :)

Very cool to see a real Bolt in the wild with an owner!!

After two nights in freezing cold, your battery conditioning % was still zero... so you used less than 6KW on battery conditioning :)

I'm interested to know if they had the same tire as the OE tire that is the self sealing Michelins or something else. The reason I ask is I can't find the OE available anywhere.

Have you tried TireRack? They currently list the 2017 Bolt OE tire as Michelin Energy Saver A/S, 215/50R17 91H, Different Tread (DT) as back ordered but able to be delivered when available. You would have to check with the TireRack advisor to confirm that the DT designation is the manufacturer's designation for the SelfSeal version of the Energy Saver A/S tire. The price difference is minimal, $7.24 per tire for the DT version versus GM's Tire Performance Specification (TPC) tire.
