ye thats our logic as well
coachnet will build up a tire on the road. just need the rubber part.




but still a 22" tire is freaking heavy

Just ordered the wheel from etrailer.com. When that comes in this week, I'll go over to Discount tire and put on their Pathfinder HSR 225 75R 16.

I have had to use Good Sam road side service (Xfinity) 4 times over 28 years. What the operator ask is: Exactly where are you (street address or crossing roads)? Second question do you have a aired-up, serviceable spare tire/wheel? One day, I had a tire leak-down because a TPMS went bad and a called and ask of an air-up. I was informed than they don't cover loss of air. I said send the truck, as I have a spare. When the truck arrived, I had him air-up my tire and signed the receipt saying he had installed a serviceable spare tire.
