I am writing a short story about a driver who accidentally slips back in time to backwoods Kansas in 1924, and how he interacts with the locals whilst he is there. Part of the story has his car getting a flat tyre on the dirt tracks they called 'roads' back then. He goes to a car repair place, and this being 1924, all they have are tyres for 1920s cars.

So...does my character have to go without transpo whilst he is in the past, or is there a solution? I imagine that the replacement tyre/wheel will have to be 'hacked' / modified somehow, right? Could it work?
