Agree with EngineerMike. With a tag axle to share the load chances are good you'll make it. (Chances??) But....FWIW... I would have the tire shop come out and change the tire then go put the 8 new ones on. Lot less exciting than a blowout and flat on the same dually..
The tire shop might have a preference.

Air up, go slow replace all when you get there.

Second best plan there is.

First is to have someone come out and replace both rears on that side then head to the shop for new shoes which I believe you are saying is the idea.

Either way I think you make it fine. Flip a coin and proceed heads you drive tails you make a call.

If you're going to the shop to have ALL the tires replaced, your only concern is that you make it there! Who cares if you weaken the other tire? Drive slowly and you'll get there.

Last spring when we took our MH out of storage, found that the RSID was flat. I figured that the best thing to do was to have a mobile service come to me to get it taken care of. The closest tire shop that could handle 22.5's was about 20 miles away. There was no way that I was going to drive it with one flat tire. Anyway they were 'too' busy to come and take care one just one tire. So I took the tire/wheel off the MH and took it to our shop. Tire was good and the reason for looseing the air was a bad(worn) extender hose.
Would I drive on just one dual NO but then I am not one of the 'lucky' ones that can get away with short cuts. For your short trip you might make it just fine but.......

We all knew you would make the right choice. ( I think that's what we said)

Good work....

I've been out of pocket so this is late, but for future problems similar to what you experiences there are some other alternatives since you mentioned you were going to replace all tires.

You could figure if it were a valve stem, nail, or whatever and see if it is repairable on the rim. For a valve stem, jack it up, pull the stem and put in another one air it up and drive the "short" distance. break the seal on the tire. If it's a nail or other item of puncture, get a plug kit but only for the short distance, air it up and go.

Or, call the tire place you are dealing with. Since you are going to be spending a lot there ask if they have an old tire of your model and could you "borrow" it. Call your roadside service, have them come out and mount the "spare" drive to the tire dealer and replace your tires and return his tire. I'm sure there are several other alternatives, but these are a few that I would do - and have done.

I believe he stated that he 8 new tires waiting so there was no concern as to any damage the overloaded tires would experience. having said that has anyone ever seen a tire come apart ????They can do a ton of damage to body panels, flooring, wires, cables brake lines etc etc etc. Thats what towing insurance is for isnt it ??

I would do it if I were replacing the remaining tire anyway. Even if it is ok when you start out, the remaining tire will be toast by the time you arrive (yes, even in just 4 miles).

You will damage the tire. Driving with one dually to get you off the road is a must do so you are safe. driving speed should be under 2 MPH. This is a good reason to have Coach-Net. As far as changing the tire or removing the tire I'd doubt that you have a wrench large enough to loosen the lug nuts. I think they are torqued at 450 ft lbs. for that you need a torque multiplyer. How about calling the dealer where you ordered new tires and having come out remove both dually on the flat side, take them to his shop, mount the new tires and bring them back to you and put them on the coach. then you can drive safely to the shop and get the rest installed. Blowwing 2 tires on one side may damage both rims, that would be expensive. Be safe. ed

They wont do any damage at low speeds.
