Drove over 5 spike strips with re-inflates equipped
Re-inflates are unlocked by finishing in at least 3rd place in all 5 events in a car. With this equipped, you'll only lose control for a few seconds after hitting a spike strip, and then your tires will re-inflate, allowing you to continue normally.
Spike strips will be dropped in pursuits. They're bright yellow, and will having flashing yellow lights. Usually, you'll see one next to a Corvette at roadblocks during pursuits, starting at heat level 5. Sometimes you'll also see a Corvette speed way ahead of you to get in position to drop a spike strip.
If you don't get this achievement just playing through the game, a very fast and easy place to get this is in "The Hunted" Ambush event. At the very start of the event, drive to the roof and jump off. This takes about 30 seconds and that's where you'll find two spike strips side by side. Run over one, turn around, and run over the other.
It's important to note that if you quit or retry the event, these won't count. So let yourself get busted to save your progress. Start the event again, and repeat until you've got 5 and unlock the achievement.
The re-inflates pop and you lose control for around 5 seconds, then they return to normal. Compared to the stock, track, or off road tires which all just pop and stay that way. You can change tires on the fly (while racing, running from cops, etc) though.
What if someone have purchased all the dlc packages which includes the Reinflates Pro tires before getting this achievement. Now I am unable to unlock the normal reinflates in order to get this one... Anyone have come across this problem? If so, is there a solution? Thx!
