Carrying a spare
On our way to Florida in January, the motorhome had a tire blow out (inside rear). It took almost 6 hours for a repair shop to locate a tire, go get it, then bring it to our location on the side of the road to break down the old tire and remount the new one.
I have plenty of room in my cargo trailer for one spare, but here is my question...
Do I need to carry two? I know that on the duals, the wheels are the same. One is inverted and they are mounted back to back. Is the front wheel the same as the rear ones? To my untrained eye, it looks different.
If it is different, then I would need to carry two spares which I do not have room for. I could just carry an unmounted tire. That way, if I get another flat, all the shop will have to do is mount it for me. No waiting for someone to locate and deliver the tire.
