Currently, I have a DP with 22.5 tires. I've taken them off at home, but wouldn't want to do it on the road. I carry an unmounted 22.5 in my storage bay and fill it with items so that the space isn't completely lost. I know there are many when you read these posts that will just say....they use their cell phone for repair. That's great, unless it's a Sunday in the middle of nowhere. I will use my cell phone to call CoachNet, but when they arrive, I'll have a tire already to go for them to mount.

If I need a tire that fits my coach in the Los Angeles area that MATCHES my other tires, it's usually a 2-3 day wait to get them. I don't like being stranded.

This topic needs to differentiate between 19.5 tires and 22.5 tires. As someone stated earlier, a lot of your Class A's with 19.5 tires come with a spare.
You can usually limp along to nearest RV park if the tie needs replacing. Front tire? Use one of the outside duals. Back tire? Just remove it. Now I wouldn't driving at 60mph with only one back tire but you can limp along slowly at 35 to the nearest town. JMHO. Been there done that. Over the last 60 years I have done a lot of boone dock camping when there were no cell phones or road service available.
