Thanks for jogging my memory on that, Kurt. You are correct. A front flat is a stopper anyway, and must be changed. A rear-dual flat can be driven on at reduced speed, and the same would go for a rear-floater flat, if the offending axle was chained up and the wheels removed from it. I carry equipment to do that (basic logging chain, carriage bolts/nuts, wide washers and two 10-ton bottle jacks).

One thing to think about with floaters is that if you get a flat you're down until you get it fixed.
With duallies you can still run with a flat (or more as long as one tire has air).
