What to do with changed out flat tire

Hi,

My coach does not have a spare.

If I did need to purchase a tire from breakdown and my one one was not wrecked should keep it and get it repaired?

I don't think the tire would fit in my storage. bay.

Thanks,

If it was only a flat , the tow / truck service can repair it on the spot. No need to buy a new one.

Liek Cliff said,
if the tire blows out (and/or throws the tread), the repair guy will install a new tire on your wheel. Then he will take the old tire and dispose of it. If it just needed a patch (like a nail puncture), then he would do that and you keep same tire and wheel.

Oh yeah - they charge for that.
If you have some sort of Roadside Assistance program, the labor would be covered but you still pay for the patch/tire.

If the flat tire was not ruined, road service would repair it on site. If it is ruined and road service provides a replacement tire, they would normally take the ruined one away.

A few folks carry a spare tire (tire only, no wheel) on a mount attached to the rear hitch, some folks carry a spare tire on the roof of the toad. We have kept the best of old tires being replaced and when we went to Alaska we were able to carry it in the coach basement in a large bay with a pull-out tray. In 15 years of travel over 100k miles, the only time we needed a spare was when we had a sidewall puncture on an outside dual 7 miles from home base. Since I was already planning to replace the 7 yr old tires the following week, rather than sitting on the side of the road for a few hours we slowly drove those 7 miles to our home base and had road service come out and put the spare on the following day. ... very interesting to watch as he did not remove the wheel from the coach, just slipped the bad tire off and slipped the spare tire on!!

There is a $15 disposal fee on truck/MH size tires. Just replaced the front tires on my new ride and put one of the take offs on the roof....had a white cover made to protect it. Will only roll it off the roof if no other good options when in a bind.

That depends on the nature of the puncture and its location.

I took a nail through the sidewall of a Michelin 225 80R a few weeks back and it was $860 for a new one. Side wall and tread edge punctures typically cannot be repaired.

Are you an FMCA member would have been right $500.00 using the Michelin program. $860.00 seems painful.
