A TPMS system and good tire repair kit (I find sticky strings better than 'special' kits)... should keep you from taking wheels off and you can monitor tire pressures.
Phil I don't know what was going on there, but as long as the brake pads are in the calipers, pulling the lever won't spit out a piston, not enough travel.
You can make an axle holding tool by making up a short bolt with the appropriate size head and running a couple of nuts on it up tight. On the road emergency, I'd use the pinch bolts on that side until snug, loosen pinch bolts, torque it up, carry on with the rest....
Keep yer stick on the ice....
