Never considered carrying a spare and didn't know that MH owners did due to weight and size. Guess I could leave the large grill I usually carry out and replace it with a spare

With coaches the size of ours, a spare is worthless. Unless you have a 600 pound impact wrench and the constitution of a 300 lb linebacker (to "wrestle" the old tire off and the new one back on).

I decided that I'm too dang old to carry a spare.... And too smart.... lol.... That's why I bought the tire/wheel warranty and roadside assistance....

I'm with you guys no way no how am I attempting to change a tire in the MH. I have all day and night and happen to have my bed with me so I will wait for the big truck and big tools to come and do it. The only reason to carry a spare is on a trip to Ak or west BFE where a matching tire might be hard to come by. I'm way to OCD to not have matching tires.

I only carried an un-mounted spare tire in the event that a matching tire is not available, as Phil mentioned above. Id I had a problem, I would call a road service and have them come and change the tire. This way I knew that I at least had the tire that would match the other tires on my coach.
