Flat Tires

Sitting in Brimfield IL with one flat and one low tire. We have no roadside assistance. Not sure what to do next. Any ideas.

ASk the highway patrol what to do. Many tire companies have weekend service, or a bi rig tow can tow you somewhere.

Which tires are bad? (front/rear/left/right)?

It's a tire repair service to take care of the flat OR if you have a spare replace the flat tire with it and drive slowly to the first tire service or truck stop with tire repair........THEN...........invest in a GOOD tire gauge, not one of the .99 cent wally world specials, a possible TPMS system, without a doubt a good VIAIR air compressor, a membership to a roadside assistance program.
Check your tire pressure EVERY day before you take off. Visually check your tires on a walk around anytime you stop and are ready to take off again. If you don't have a spare.........get one, even two if you travel much. A couple of wooden planks, bottle neck or compact floor jack, 4-way tire wrench safety hi vis vest when you're out with a problem roadside. Safety triangles or battery powered flashing warning light. Depending on tire size consider LT instead of ST tires, buy the best set of tires you can afford.

We had everything checked a a tire shop that morning and all was fine. We found a State Park close and are camping there until Monday when tire shops open. The people we met in this area are all helpful and very friendly. Thank god all people are not judgmental. Will be receiving quotes tomorrow for new tires that I requested today. Have a TPMS system and forgot we have roadside assistance on our insurance. Was just hoping someone new the area because we did not. Thanks for your input.

Areyou sure you don;t have roadside assistance? Most auto/rv policies come with it unless you refuse the coverage.

No matter how carefully you check the tires before you head out on a trip, things do happen. That's why they call them road hazards and slow leaks.

We met a fellow traveler once, who scanned his campsite with a metal detector before he parked his RV. He said, past experience running over nails and screws left by previous campers.

I haven't gone that far yet, but have thought about it. I always find a nail or screw or two laying around in most campsites where we park.
