Default what tools to carry at all times?

sup fellas im just bored at work and was thinking what "no matter what" tools would you travel with all the time? not looking to brig my whole tool box, but i was curious as to what you guys drive with in your trunk? I have a full roll up sleeve of ratcheting wrenches, adj channel locks, switchable Phillips and Flathead screwdriver, oh and i carry a full quart of oil just in case (im super charged), and also have spare lugs with lug key. So just wanted to pick ya'lls brain for a minute...... hope all is well peace

Great idea Bill.. also didn’t think about that one. Gonna add that to both cars. GTR doesn’t even have a spare.
Wtf I guess cause runflats. But now I would be screwed cause R888’s.

I always have the plug kit and compressor. I also have a can of fix-a-flat at all times just incase the location isn’t best for pulling a wheel. Also always have zip ties, electrical repair kit, 1 coil pack and gloves.

Except for track days, it never occurred to me to carry any tools in the S. I carry a AAA membership card.

Now the Volvo is a completely different story. The farthest I ever got on one trip without breaking down was about 18 miles. Tools and spare parts in the boot. But it also has its own dedicated trailer for longer journeys.
