All spare tires are not created equally. There are two types to choose from, and while they are both designed to sustain you on your commute to the nearest tire shop, there are some distinct differences and limitations to keep in mind.

A compact temporary tire also referred to as a donut, is the smaller version and should only be driven for no more than 50 miles as it lacks the strength of its counterpart. When using one, always drive slow and stay off of the highways. A full-size spare tire, however, is basically the same as a regular tire and can be driven on as long as needed.

The good news is, switching out a tire is a skill that you will never have to learn. In efforts to make your life easier, our dealership offers a tire replacement service to get you safely back on the road in just a matter of moments.
