Heavy-duty tires, puncture strips, tubes to reduce the chance of flats. Everyone has their favorites, I like the Specialized Armadillo Nimbus. Disadvtange is if I do have to fix a flat, the sidewalls are very stiff so changing the tire difficult.
it was just meant to be as a little light to get your wheel off, then you can use your Main Lights to do your tube changing...etc....

And YES I have done it
