Sorry I only got the car less than 2 weeks ago, I was going through the owners manual and the car learning what I got.
I dont have a air compressor or fix a flat, and there was no tow ring in the spot above the battery.

Doesnt the car come with them or was that something I was supposed to 'buy'

I have to go back to the dealer to get paperwork for the registration and want to be smart before I go requesting them

Congrats on your new toy!

(I am assuming you got a new C7 and not through some private sale)

1) You have run flat tires, so no tire repair equipment is needed (ZP = Zero Pressure)
2) I believe this came with one of the upgrade packages, as I didn't get one either - I'm sure someone will chime in with more details

Happy Holidays!


Update 12/31/2019



Far right of page 255 of the 2018 Corvette owners manual:

"This vehicle, when new, had run-flat tires. There is no spare tire, no tire changing equipment , and no place to store a tire in the vehicle"


Bottom right of page 276 of the 2018 Corvette owners manual:

"To obtain a tire sealant and compressor kit, see your dealer"


Sounds to me like it might be a dealer installed option.

I hope that helps.

Didnt realize the Michelins were run flat, the Camaro I just got rid of had a compressor and run flats. Just nice to have a peace of mind

US Corvettes don't come with the tow hook.
They are required for European vehicles.
You can buy one from GM for about $100.
