I'm kinda hesitant about getting the sideskirts because I'm paranoid that I might get a flat sometime and won't be able to reach the jackpoints. I'm not gonna lower my car anytime soon, but was wondering what you would do if you got a flat tire. Thanks!

u will still be able to change ur spare, bc the stock jack is a scissor jack and it can reach under ur car even tho it's relaly low

however if ur really paranoid u could always carry some wood with u.

you can still get under to reach the jack points...it will just be a rough at the dealer and be careful they dont break or crack them when puttin them up on the lift

Hamann sideskirts are so low to a point that the jack won't reach the jackpoint. So, what I do is carry a 4X4 wood. Also, I just recently took my car in for oil service, and the dealership mechanic did not know not to put my car over the rack. Luckily, I mentioned it to them. What they did was use the oil extractor to change the oil. You can also request them to put on the alignment rack.
