Spare Tire Guide: Buying a Compact or Full-Size Tire

Flat tires are a headache, but when you replace the tire, you want to make sure that you get the right spare for the situation. While some dealerships include a spare "compact" tire, others will have a full-size tire that is a good replacement to match your other tires in case of a flat tire.

Compact spare tires are smaller and not made to handle the complete load of your vehicle. These tires will only travel for 50 miles at most. You will need to take your car to the shop immediately if you replace with a spare tire. However, these smaller donut tires can fit in most trucks and don't cause additional load on your vehicle if you choose a full-size tire.

Full-size spare tires are typically exactly like your other tires with thicker tread and more longevity for the next trip. Want to get the best prices a new set of tires?
