Moderators topgun2 Posted April 28, 2022 Moderators Share Posted April 28, 2022 Flat tire - I carry a "plug" kit that I can get in WalMart. I've always carried one of these kits - with or without the Ollie in tow. Wheel bearing issue - I carry a set of bearings like this: While I could change out the bearings with this set, that is NOT my intent. It is fairly easy to get the drum off the axle and carry that to virtually any gas station or tire shop that has a mechanic. The issue is not doing the job on the side of the road where it could be fairly dangerous, but, getting to a safe place and NOT having to wait for them to order the bearings. Yes, these bearings are fairly standard, but, I don't want to hear, "I'm sorry, we just sold our last set this morning". I've been carrying two of these sets around for the past seven years - just in case. And, before you ask - yes, they are made in China. However, I figure that they will last long enough to get me home where I can do a proper job with good bearings and good grease.
