I found out last week that when a Ranger has a flat tire on the front, and when the roads are all ice, you don't go no where. That truck will just spin and spin and the flat tire acts as a block on the wheel. I ended up getting it towed to a garage, they put on the spare, then I drove to Walmart to get another new matching tire put on.There was no way for me to change it on my own, (I have a heart condition), so doing it this way was my best option. Just fixing the tire might have worked for a while, but I didn't want to go thru this again so I bought a new tire. Having a little compressor there may have saved me some grief. Damn cold weather !!!!!!!!!! It was about 12 degrees when the tire went flat.
