Quick update. Tuesday 29th, found a used tire on the internet and were able to replace the blown tire. Now driveable. New tires not available without a special order for that size, from any tire dealer. They had to be ordered from a warehouse, unknown where. All stating that delivery would be 5-10 business days. This was same response from different tire dealers/tire manufacturers. We are in a major area, Toronto ON. P245/40 18. This is more of a car problem not an RV one where commercial truck tires are used, even with different sizes.

Lack of a factory provided spare is one of the most annoying nonsensical developments. During my B shopping I found the ProMaster based vans didn't come with a spare. No good options for adding one other than a hitch rack that interfered with the back door. I think the Transit vans may come with a spare but the Covid put an end to my shopping before I could verify that. Our new Prius doesn't have a spare. I've got a plug kit and a compressor and AAA but I still feel it's an unnecessary roll of the dice.
