That's what I was thinking too. I've never used a 'fleet service' etc before for a flat. Kind of worry that that is going to run $100+ to change a flat when I have plenty of space to carry one.

Yeah, that's what I thought, but they did use a two handed air tool to get them off at discount tire. I asked the guy and I think he said over 300 ftlbs! I have a 1 ton truck too, but these lugs look a different game.

At least the tires aren't any more expensive than a pickup truck. I went ahead and replaced 3 tires that were still above the wear bars, but close. FOr now I'll just watch the tires real close, but I'd really like to figure out a system...

Maybe at least if I carry the spare tire in the box, a fleet side will change it out cheaper than me having to buy one on the spot from his limited inventory???
