Turns out no, they do cannot take large trucks & RVS and the closest location was on Lougheed (still close to where we are)
So onto the new location and explained the situation - yes they can
the problem with this location is the access (lots of highway construction and congestion)
This morning took the lotorhome into Kal Tire on Lougheed
Pulled the metal piece
Thankfully the metal was not deeply into the tire - no leaking - no repair!
THANK YOU Kal Tire!
and thanks everyone here too!
Our Canadian offices maintain a contract with Kal Tire, very responsive to our needs.
I have also found Fountain Tire to have excellent customer service. DOn't know if you them in Vancouver.
Had to have 4 tires replaced in Edmonton. Then needed the torque on the lugs checked in 100 miles. Left Edmonton, found another Fountain Tire on my way back to Alaska, pulled in and they ran right out and checked all my tires, not just the 4 that had been installed by their Edmonton branch. No charge.
The only downside is the cost of tires 275 70R 22.5 almost twice the cost here in the states.
