Understanding the Difference Between a Compact Temporary and a Full-Size Spare Tire

November 30th, 2018 by

Flat tires are the cause of many accidents on the road. Understanding your spare tire and how it works will help you to avoid using it improperly, keeping you safer while driving.

Using a full-size tire as your spare can be an excellent option. When you need to replace a flat tire, using the full-size spare means you don't have to buy a new tire. Simply install it and be on your way. You will need to remember to rotate it out with your other tires so that it wears equally with them. A compact temporary is a quick fix that can get you to the nearest service station for a new tire. They aren't meant to be driven on for more than 70 miles.
