    Hi
    new owner operator here
    I'm wondering if there are any good roadside assistance companies? and are they worth it?

    I suspect I need a new axle and tire .... how much would this typically run?

    Axle doctor will run close to 3-4k at a ta

    Tire or rim? Too many variables 400-1500

    Not doing it till broken on the highway at 70 mph could cost your life though

    Call axle surgeon direct. They’ll come to you. Franchises everywhere. They’ll do whatever you need as far as axle repair, not sure about tire. I had a quote for $2000, to replace spindle, hub,new bearings and seal, on my trailer. Ended up not needing a spindle, fixed it myself.

    Pretty vague post. Truck axle? Trailer axle? Spindle damaged? Cracked? Bent? Broken? Axle shaft snapped?

    This is the silliest post i ever read. Kid "suspects" he needs a new axle and a tire. and the the roadside assistance question. LMAO!!!! Enlighten us how you came to this conclusion. Did the axle split in half and the tire fell off rim? haha
