What Type of Spare Tire is in the Trunk?

Your first concern when pulled off to the side of the road with a flat tire is how to get going again quickly and safely. The compact spare, or donut, is a practical answer for a temporary fix. Another option is the full-size spare tire, which is just like the regular set on your vehicle.

A compact tire will get you on your way to a service station. Since it is much smaller than a regular tire, it has limited tread depth. Vehicle handling with a compact spare is not the same as with a regular tire, and as a result, reduced speeds are recommended. A full-size spare is an option for your passenger car, but it is the required size with trucks and SUVs. If you use a full-size spare option, it is recommended to get the flat repaired, so that you are always equipped with a spare.
