Every good driver knows that having a spare tire is an important part of being a responsible car owner. However, many drivers in Walnut Creek, CA are often confused by the options that are available. Let's take a look at two of the main types of spare tires to see which one is the best choice for your vehicle.

The first type of spare tire is the Compact Temporary Tire, and it's often referred to as a "donut" tire. These tires require little storage space and are designed to fit each particular vehicle type and model. As space-saving as these tires may be, they have speed limitations and are made only for the short distance to the tire repair shop.

A Full-Size Spare Tire is exactly what it sounds like. It is a full-sized, functioning tire that can be put on and used. Many drivers don't like them because they take up more space and need to be part of a tire rotation, but they are safer than compact versions.
