The front (right) tire of our 2019 Bolt has a pretty severe gash/flat. Wifey scraped the curb while turning into a strip mall, so the damage is in the sidewall (https://i.postimg.cc/bwkF23p1/IMG-8156.jpg
). The Bolt frame is not easily accessible so I haven't been able to use the scissor jack from our RDX. The only option seems to be to drive to a nearby tire store (~2 miles) or GM dealer (1.5 miles).
Will there be wheel damage if I drive it in this state? (Wife drove the car ~1 mi to bring it home)
Can I change just the damaged tire (have 18k miles only so far)?
Do I need to stick to the Michelin OEM tire or would any other brand be okay?
The other option is calling AAA and having them tow it to either auto repair store.
