Any ideas?
Most generally, you're only going to have rim damage on a front tire, because the rear has a mate that should carry the weight until you get stopped. If you're choosing one style wheel to carry, I'd pick an aluminum steer wheel, no tire. Less space required, and only 40-45 lbs.

With my blowout, I could not tell if we needed a rim as well as the tire. As a result, the ERS guy brought both...after I paid for both over the phone. Since my rim was still okay and we did not need it, I got a credit.
