Wonderful, a flat TT tire....,

Went to pull the TT out of storage today and noticed that one tire looked a little soft. Moved onto some level pavement within the storage yard, and sure enough, FLAT! Fortunately I had checked the air pressure in all the tires last fall, so the spare was good to go. Changed the tire, and on the way home I stopped by our local Belle Tire store. They patched the tire where a small nail went through the center of the tread, and they put the repaired tire back on the TT for me.

Here's the best part, Belle Tire said "no-charge"!
So I guess they have just become my favorite local tire store.

Hope to be leaving Friday for a week long camping trip.

Bob

The little setbacks will just make the rest of the trip better once you finally get there and have your campfire going and favorite beverage in hand while trying to decide to cook the ribeyes Medium Rare, or just Rare. Have a great trip next week.

Sorry to hear about the flat. At least you didn't have to change it on a busy interstate in the rain.

Check out Discount Tire. Customer service is great, prices are reasonable, and the road hazard warranty they sell for their tires is bullet proof.

I second Discount Tire in AZ. They have had our business for the last 20 yrs. I have never paid for a flat fix and any of our vehicles or PUP. Haven't had a flat on the TT yet (knock on wood).
