Mobil tire service is very expensive. That would be my last resort. You could try this....driv it out on the street a block from home then call your road side assistance. You are not at home anymore.

After calling just about every Tire company around I opted to forgo Good Sam and do it on my own as getting the tire serviced for a fix ran between $70-90. Decided to go with Atlanta Commercial Tire who had a new tire in stock and would have on the truck if needed. Plus the Michelin 235/70/22.5 XRV was $419 with them and $540 plus with Good Sams ERS and everywhere else.

Very glad I did it this way. When the outside tire came off there was a hole as big as a quarter in the side wall. No fixing that tire. No idea when or how this happened without harming the outside tire. Second photo is of the inside of the tire.

I had scheduled replacement of 6 tires. The morning of the appointment I found the left outside dual was flat. Called tire store to have them come out to replace tire so I could go in to change other 5. Store asked if I had roadside service I did and he was one of CN's service providers. He came out CN paid for service call, Tire was changed at price already agreed for all 6 tires. Whole thing handled for no extra charge. By the way I have had 2 calls covered by CN at my home location and one while in a campground, no problem.

I will check with GS ERS to see if they will cover the service call. If they don't I'm still ahead with the price I paid.

I'm glad you called road service. Scheduled road service is not expensive. Emergency road service can be.

Interesting. Was not my experience. The onsite tech could have just swapped on my spare tire or since he saw the problem and was readily repairable he recommended to do so.

Sometimes after checking tire pressure, the valve core doesn't seat properly and it creates a slow leak, even after changing the valve core. Sometimes I just have to push it back in and let it back out and it stops. Now after checking tire pressure, I spray some soapy water on the valve stems to make sure they're not bubbling. I'd air up the tire, spray the tread with soapy water and watch for bubbles. I like to know where the leak is before I take it to a tire shop.
