Sacto Tire & Repair Shop? (BONUS Scary Photos!)

URGENT NEED! I am looking for a good Sacramento RV/Truck repair shop and a good tire shop.

Tonight I stopped for gas in my (new to me) twenty year old Newmar Mountain Aire and spot half the tread missing on a tag axle tire!

Limping a few miles to a Camping World I pull over for Chicken Vindaloo (super HOT curry) only to then see gas dripping from the filler tube onto the __wiring harness__!!

While this is an expensive night I realize it is also one of the very luckiest moments of my 56 years!

Imagine wrestling a blowout at speed just as the gas tank explodes!

(8-{O}

Does anyone know of good local truck repair and or tire shops in Sacramento area (Roseville preferred)?

Or, is there a knowledge base for shops or perhaps a better forum for the question?

(Sorry if this is impossible to read. Today was brutal before the scares!)

Thank you all!

Do you have any road service cards? Coachnet took care of finding me a service center quickly. There is a Pilot on I80 in Sacramento. Call any towing service company and ask them. You may be able to get a mobile service for a few dollars more.

I have used East Bay Tire Company. They are off I-80 in Sacramento. The address is 180 Harris Avenue, Sacramento, CA 94510. Phone: 916-641-2329. Toll free: 800-422-4774

Near them is the Sacramento Truck Center. I used them in the past for RV work as well.

I have always worked with Les Schwab tire shops on the West Coast, because there are so many of them.

Most have to work on the rigs outside, but they have mounted full sets of tires on my rig.

9095 Fairway Dr
Roseville, CA
(916) 780-9669

5610 Pacific St
Rocklin, CA
(916) 315-8615

Most have a road service option as well.

Yeah, you're very lucky to have caught that in time!


Is the fuel leak anywhere near that tire? Maybe the missing tread section hit the fuel line when it departed the coach, causing the leak.


I don't recognize that tread pattern. What brand of tire is it, and how old?
