The guys at Graham Tire patched it for us, but had us bring the spare in and swapped out the tires/rims. They said it would be okay for a spare, but not for regular use since the puncture was so close to the sidewall. Sigh...
He makes it look so easy
In the time it took me to haul the spare out of the back of the truck, roll it around, hoist it up onto the holder and re-secure it, he had the tire back on.
The boys contribution was standing at the fence whinnying at us. Apparently they thought the trailer was getting more than its fair share of attention. Sorry boys, no ride tonight - maybe tomorrow.
