Lesson here is don't wait till last minute. Imagine if I'd had a flat while on the road. Just FYI.
I carry a bare spare for just that reason. 19.5's are common, but my specific size isn't.
However worst case, I could replace a front with a new 19.5 tire that is a different size if I had a bad front, or replace both fronts and move the two fronts to be a new dual if I had a bad tire on the back.
