The most cost efficient would be, if you have a tow service, ie; Coachnet, Good Sams or something similiar, I would buy another tire only and stow it in one of your lower compartments. If you let them know, a good tow service will have a truck that can put the new tire on the rim with the flat when at the scene.

Welcome Steven62 to irv2.
I just post this answer in another post for someone to answer your question.
If you take care of tires on your coach you do not need extra cost of a spare or the added weight to carry it.
Of course its up to you in what you decide.
Enjoy the forums and do post often.

Even if you had a spare, I doubt you'd have a jack strong enough to lift the RV or a wrench big enough to take the lugs off. RV roadside assistance is an add on on almost every insurance policy out there. We don't have a spare on our 05 Dolphin either. If I loose a tire, I call Geiko and they take care of things.

I carry a fully loaded fire extinguisher for the same reason. When you need it, and you eventually well need both the spare and the fire extinguisher, you will have it. I have needed a spare twice. Both times without it it could have cost me a fortune had I not had my own spare. There are people out here with empty pockets that just love ''unprepared'' Rv'ers to come along with a fat credit card and nothing more and they will empty your ''card'' to fill their ''pockets''. Been there and seen that tried on me and it didnt work because I was prepared.
Good luck.....

Thank a vet for your freedom.....

Steven62, I just replaced our 2 front tires(235-80-22.5") and saved one of them to use as an unmounted spare for our road service provider to install should a replacement not be available. I'm now looking into mounting it between the frame rails...the tire will not fit into any of our basement compartments. Measure up before ya buy... Bob

Same problem on our Seabreeze. I went to a local Camping World and got a used tire they had removed from another motorhome (same size as mine). Slid it into a storage bin. They were happy to get rid of the tire - had a stack of them in the back.

I always carry a spare. I you depend on tire service, you are at their mercy. Sometimes they get there fairly soon, other times it is hours before they arrive. Many times they bring a used tire. The story is, they couldnt find a new tire. The truth is, it is a out of date takeoff they got for free from my dealership,(or another MH dealer) As for not getting the wheel nuts off, When i go to the tire store I carry my ford owners manual, show them the torque spec. (which is 190 ft. pounds) Hand them my torque wrench and watch them torque the nuts. If i cant be there, I have a 39 chevy.drive shaft, which i slip over a breaker bar. I loosen all the lug nuts and retorque. I carry a 24 inch breaker bar in the motorhome. If the lugnuts are at the correct torque, they can be easily removed. If you dont have a pipe or such, just buy a 5 ft. piece of thickwall steel pipe at lowes or home depot. Always break loose and retorque the nuts, because the thousand pound or so torque the tire co. leaves on them, stresses everything.
