Thats pretty cool! I've been reading about that type system thats being used in a few of the new cars. Personally I feel more secure with a spare. I know it's easy to plug a tire and I also have a 12v air compressor (it's fine if you got about 30 min to air up a tire). Whether or not hitting something in the road is or isn't your fault, the tire is still cashed and your stranded without a spare. Kinda like an auto accident your fault or not your still dead! I've also had valve stems start leaking, and have leaked from a cut by either something off the road or the hubcap. To me that system is nice but when it comes down to it the thing probably doesn't work as accurately as the hype says it does. You consider $225 for the system with an extra $100 in optional equipment you can buy another new set of tires almost!
