I have a leak in one of my tires (not flat, just leaking a bit, dropped to 36 psi). With every prior car I've owned, I'd just take it to a tire shop for them to patch the leak. However, I've heard that with electric cars some tire shops may inadvertently damage the battery with their jack when taking a tire off. (My dad has a Tesla and recently when he had a leak, the first tire shop he went to said they don't work on Teslas for this reason). Is this a concern with the ID4? I've never thought twice about taking a car to a regular tire shop, but am wondering if potential damage to the battery is a concern. Have others just gotten tires patched/replaced at typical shops that handle ICE vehicles too?
