It would be a long wait if a flat happened in some areas of the country but I would think a day or two and a tire would be available most anywhere. I may call some places we plan to travel to see what the worse case would be. That would be the deciding factor on carrying a spare. I did look under the MH and mounting a spare there would not be a easy thing to do and very expensive. I say this post and wondered what other MH did. I think that I wasn't clear on what is involved in changing a flat. I asked the dealer and they recommend having a good service plan and letting the service company haul the tire for you. Waiting for a exact match is what worried me.
Not for certain about a spare, don't have one either, but these tires are truly truck tires and can be supplied by road service dealers in a failure. We both know not too many people can change these wheels 22.5" with on board equipment. Road service trucks carry tires for many sizes, with jacks, pneumatic wrenchs and sledge hammers to get them loose. I think if you should have to call tell them tire size they would have it or can get it soon. Notice these repairs trucks carry spares without rims, they mount on scene. I can't imagine what these tires weigh mine is 235 while yours is 255 even heavier. What ever they are they reduce RV cargo capacity by quite a bit. Tools would be even more. I'm going to call a local truck tire dealer and ask him response time and availability of equal tires, just for example. Tires are all alike, my outside rims are all alum alloy and the inside rears are steel.
