View Full Version : Tire replacement on the road

Just a quick question about having tires replaced on the road. While we have a mounted spare does a mobile tire service have the ability to put a new tire on the flat tires rim on the road if needed?

Sure, most tire service can change the tire but there may be a charge. If you are using road side assist from some insurance, most likely will not pay for the additional tire change. They will do what is cheapest and quickest to get you to a tire shop. If you are paying the bill they will do what you want.

While most tire services can, many times the auto club type deals will send someone out with a jack and sometimes in a car so it's best to ask and pay for a good service.

Had two blow outs, Good Sam sent someone with two new tires and changed them roadside. Temperature was in the 90's and all the guy had was a sledge hammer and giant tire levers.

We switched to Coach Net a few years ago after poor road side service from who ever the insurance got--at a low ball cost. Yes, Coach Net costs about $100 per year, but when you get great service, it is LOW COST.
