If you have ever seen a tire spun on a balance machine you would realize that it should be illegal to mount a tire without balancing it,it can be quite a violent action.

Was that included? I have to bring my unit back to the dealer for a few things after this trip...I'll inquire about that just for the hell of it..

Does anyone know what type of lug wrench I need to remove one of my tires. A standard 4-way lug wrench or a standard socket won't fit the nut or inside the space on the rim?

Don't know the size, but it will no doubt be a deep thin wall 1/2" drive socket and breaker bar/ratchet/torque wrench.

I used an impact socket. I think it was 13/16 size. And it was tough to get in that aluminum rim. The 4 way I couldn't get in at all.

You should have gotten an app. that you have to call in and reg. FR pay's for 1 year roadside service assistance. they will cover the cost of repair and the tow truck to change it. It is called Coach-Net the web site is NMC home | Roadside Assistance | Independent Sales Rep | Coach-Net | RV Technical Assistance | Emergency Security Plus if you need it replaced or repaired they cover it. BUT YOU HAVE TO REGISTER......Good luck and enjoy yourself, you are covered.

America's Tire around here will not repair a bias ply ST tire. They will repair a radial.

I ended up getting it repaired at a tire place. And I did some research and all said as long as the side wall is not damaged...and you use a plug/patch and not just a plug...all should be good. I did finally receive my roadside assistance package...it didn't say I needed to register though...I got the membership cards and everything.

I just bought four new Maxxis 13" tires for my (new to me) little Flagstaff. I also bought a TPMS. It took a week to get the sensors from Georgia (shipped ground).

I wouldn't take the tires home from the tire shop until I received the TPMS sensors to put on for proper balancing. I believe it's very important.

Proper inflation, monitoring, and balancing should all go a ways to forestalling tire problems.

Can't say I didn't try!

A proper repair is a patch on the inside of the tire in the tread area. Patching a sidewall is asking for another tire failure.

I suspect Wally-World's tire repair policy is for loss-prevention (read lawsuit) reasons. They can't be too careful, and it just costs the consumer to follow their lawyers' recommendations.
