Something as simple as a tire change will end up being impossible without the right tools...

Let's say you purchased a nice set of low profile after market wheels to match your new high profile tires.  You're wheels are secured with wheel lock nuts.  This creates a problem!  Your tire iron is now too small to fit over your wheel locks!  If you only had a 21mm socket!  it's a good idea to carry mechanic tools.  You might need to remove your bent skid plate, etc.
