Good Sam Roadside Assist - Question

For those of you, that had a tire blowout and had to have the tire replaced on the side of the road, what brand of tire did they bring out?

Don't use Good Sam, but they and all the others use contract service providers who will only have available what they sell themselves.

especially if your on the I 495 in Massachusetts. My parents got stranded there for hours in 90 plus degree heat twice once for a tire , they just needed it change and once for a broken spring. The dispatcher for good sam had no clue what to do about the broken spring. They have no service companies in that area. Some random passer by wrecker guy happen to stop to help them luckily, wasn't easy moving a 5er with spring sheared off and the tires locked together.

last year on the way to Calf. we used good sam 2 times the new tire, that when booth tires on the passenger side blew, was a brand that I had never herd of but was a heavy duty truck tire. the second time I waited 6 hrs. and they never found any one to change the tire on the other side a passer by stopped and changed it for me, I am handicapped and can not do it myself, when my service riuns I will go back to Coach Net service. I know better but totally screwed up when I bought this trailer and did not check the dates on the tires they looked new, they were 2008. ended up replacing all some where in AZ.

Greg,

Buy new high quality G rated tires every 3-5 years, use a good TPMS and you will be less likely to have a flat.

You may be lucky to get the right tire depending on where you are. I picked up a nail that left the tire not repairable and used the spare. I had to wait for a mail order replacement as there was not a Sailun replacement in Southern AZ.

Good advice On my SOB I always put new mich. rib tires on every 5 years and never had a tire problem. I thank that is why I forgot to check the tires on this trailer. Right I am waiting to get the trailer into the shop to have a new gray tank installed . crossing my fingers that the extended warranty will pay but the have refused two other times, Refg.,and awing I have tried to cancel the insurance sense the first week I had it.

I always carry a spare tire and wheel for the spare tire and wheel. With my 6 pt leveling and cordless impact i can change my tire myself and still have a spare so i can deal with the tire issure when i get home. If you can't do the work yourself then it would be good to at least carry a extra tire so roadside assistance can mount it on your wheel so that you would still have a spare to get home on and not have to pay an arm and leg for some brand of tire you don't like. And yes good G rated tires and TPMS can make for a much less stressful trip.

Just a thought but i hear people doing this, putting the 14 ply tires on lighter campers like 10-12-14 thousand pound campers and using the 4 point leveling jacks to pick the camper up to change a tire or to level a camper( meaning pick the wheels completely off the ground). I would think that would put a lot of stress on the walls and frame. I know just going to a more ply tire would make it ride alot harder , like going from a 6 ply to a 10ply on a pickup sure makes it ride harder
