Can someone lend me a spare for a week?

Hey fellas, I have to make a run out to Phoenix Arizona from here in Sacramento Ca. The trip has come without notice so couldnt plan ahead. I need to bring my daughter with me and I dont want to be left stranded with her. I would be willing to give collateral as well. Please let me know if you can help. I need to leave by tonight and be back in about a week.. Thanks ahead.

Buy a can of 'fix a flat'...and get a AAA membership.

If your tires are low on tread, especially at the corners where tread meets sidewall...get new tires...should take just an hour or so at local Firestone, etc.

Also, you should be able to find a proper fitting steel wheel from someplace...call around...and I bet a local shop has some crappy old tire you could put on it and be fine with...if needed.

Hey fellas. Thanks anyways. I figured out a way to leave my daughter here. If I do end up with a flat, I will definitely be using my plugs and fix a flat can. Maybe some luck would help. Thank you again for the offer. Much appreciated. Oh ya, Dmax, My tires are all brand new, but I sold the spare as an original set to pay for my new ones. I just havent bought a new one yet and the trip wasnt planned. Therefore, Im SPARELESS!!! lame. Ive got my own tire machine and balancer, but nobody was open to sell me one on sunday.. I have tonight too.
