Probably not great for the tyres to be sitting deflated.

^^^ and especially if you try and drive on flat tyres. Even for a very short distance.

Tyre compressors are not and as far as I am aware never been included as standard.

If a spare wheel has been included as an Option that includes a compressor as the spare is a slim collapsable tyre.

No spare wheel, then all they supplied was a can of sealant / inflator.

Even today no means of inflating a tyre is standard, the inflator kit or spare are Options.

Porsche rely on Porsche Assist to get an owner moving in the event of having an immobile car.


Both of my Macans came with a compressor as standard.
Good to know.

Does not seem the case with Gen 3 where Tyre Sealant and Compressor are a £42 extra.

Compressor and sealant were provided as standard upto and including MY20. The one supplied with my MY2016 SD had to be connected direct to the battery (or the underbonnet terminals) but I believe later ones came with a cigarette lighter/12V power point connector.

And if by chance, the tyre bead has come away from the rim, highly unlikely but possible. A car tyre inflator will never inflate the tyre. Then plan b or c, would be needed.
If I caught someone playing with my wheel, thoughts of peeing on them would go through my mind.😩
The thought did occur, however given the instructions on their website to let a small hard object do the deflating, they'd be done and off in prob <15 seconds so it'll be a very slim chance of catching them in the act unless you were continually watching the vehicle.

Published 'instructions' are just a smokescreen so they can say no damage was done. As the other thread showed, the act of deflating is criminal damage. They are better off spiking the sidewalls.

It doesn’t say it is criminal damage. Not even the Met Police say that. Not until it becomes case law., and it’s not there yet. Any damage to the tyre, is indeed criminal damage.
That’s why their site gives instructions on what to do and how to do it. So they don’t get busted for their actions.

You would be surprised how easy it is to catch people out. Especially when they get complacent, and the catcher is hyper alert, observant and perceptive.
