    Easy. Trade in the Winnie for a spare wheel with attached motorhome :BigGrin:

    Hi Smudger, unlikely you will damage a rim unless you are on alloys or drive for miles on a flat, I only carry a tyre as I am long past changing truck wheels myself, I have had hundred's of punctures over the years in a truck and never had one rim that was damaged beyond use, and 99% of the time not amark on the rim, and believe me I have destroyed some tyres :Doh:.

    hope this helps a bit.

    Rick.

    Hi Smudger When i bought our Siesta from Four Winds last year I had to add the wheel and tyre as an extra.
    This is also the case with many european models. I went for the complete wheel and tyre to avoid any delays when calling the rescue services and if necessary to be able to change it myself,
