I just googled tire service in Tampa and came up with these two that are still open, they close at 7PM. All the rest are already closed:

Tire Kingdom (813)628-0800
The Tire Choice (813)574-0940

Or search for a truck center?

If you have a Ford chassis and its less than 3 years old you should have roadside assistance through Ford which is handled by Coachnet.

Spare tire and rim...Got it.
20 ton bottle jack....Got it
Electric impact wrench powerful enough to take E-450 lugs off...Got it.
Flat tire...no problem.
Grumpy

Also, if not able to change it yourself, at least carry a mounted spare tire and rim so you are not "gouged" by the responding service for whatever tire they bring you.

Thanks

Thanks Grumpy... I think that's the route I will go... I finally got service last nite.... I've read so many times not to do this yourself... yet the guy came , put a jack under (hooked to air compressor), changed tire... 10-15 minutes... why no local truck or tow service would do it I don't know... this guy came from 30 miles away. I have the bottle jack but not the impact wrench... will have to get one

Make sure you stop at a tire service center (my experience is any will do) and have the lug nuts re-torqued after 100 miles or so.
