getting ready for a 4000 mile trip (Sprinter 2500) and don't have a spare just a tire repair kit w/compressor. has anyone ever had GS come out with a new tire vs repairing a flat tire? wonder if a flat occurs on a Sunday and they cant get a new tire...

We carry a spare and have had GS come and change it but I also carry a repair kit and compressor just in case they can't or won't come out. Also works on the car and maybe one of our Harley's.

I'd always carry at least an unmounted spare.

I cant answer your question about Good Sam but of my four or so tire issues i have had on my TT none would of been repairable by a patch kit. I have read that sometimes it takes a while for them to show up and on top of that they have to head back and get a tire plus i imagine you might pay a premium but i'm just guessing on the later.

Not sure what GS would say about bringing out a new tire or using your patch kit.... however I would not give it much thought. Just go have some fun and deal with contingencies when presented.

a good guess IMHO. and they might bring out a 15 year old slightly off sized one and you would have to pay a premium for it. that is why you should carry at least an unmounted spare.

If you can take care of a tire repair yourself, you'll be back on the road MUCH faster than waiting for someone else to arrive.

Always carry a spare and tools to change. Never had road service. In fact, I've changed a few for unfortunate RV'ers on the roadside (if they had a spare to change).

Changing a flat is grade school easy. Hydraulic jack, some wood blocks, screw driver to pop the cap and a 4 way lug wrench.

I happen to be a good scout, always preparred.

I'm a good Scout, always prepared.to carry a good plug kit and compressor to, but if the puncture is close to the sidewall, it;s not pluggable.
