For those that are so sure Coach Net or Good Sam can get them a tire...try this little test. At your leizure, call around your home and try to locate your size tire and brand. If you find one, lucky you, but I'll bet that most of you will have to wait 2-3 days for one to be shipped.

Some will say just take what ever road service might have, but all that will do is get you back on the road to the nearest town to wait for the correct tire. I carry an unmounted spare in my storage bay on the slide tray. I fill inside and around it with gear.

Call your road service. It's a lot less frustrating than you would think.
500 ft lbs and wheel/tire weigh something over 200#'s.
Due to the front weight of our rig we have 305/70 22.5's on the front and 275/70's on the rear. No way can we carry two spares.
