ANY tire left flat with the wt of the vehicle on it can have a sidewall failure. You should be careful.Caution: I have heard rumors that the tires on the A3's can be dangerous if they are left to sit flat for a long time. If it has sat flat for awhile (months or years, I dont know) it could come apart on the trip home.
Just something to keep in mind if your recovery drive is very long.
I would definitely buy a glad connector air hose for the ride home. Plug it in to the truck air system and use it to air up the tires.. I bought one off of ebay and it works great. Check the tires regularly on the trip home. I know a guy who drove an A3 400+ miles after sitting flat on 3 tires at the base and the tires held up. Those tires are also expensive to replace. If possible, secure a few tires before the recovery and bring them along just in case.

If you bought a truck that starts and runs, ask the GL guys to fire it up and power up the CTIS system and let it air up the tires. If it works it will air them up a bit. If not bring a glad handle air hose with you and air them yourself.
My primary concern would be steer tires as they can cause you to lose control of the truck if they blow. If you have doubts, stop at the nearest tire shop or call a tire service truck and swap them for the two best tires.
