Understanding Compact Temporary and Full-Size Spare Tires

If you've ever had a flat tire, you might have noticed there are different kinds of spare tires to replace the flat in an emergency. Understanding the differences between these tires can make you a better informed car owner.

Most people are familiar with the compact temporary spares that have a limited lifespan. They are an emergency measure meant to get you down the road to a service station, where you can have your flat fixed or replaced. Another option is using a full-size tire as your spare. This eliminates the need to visit a service station, as the tire can be mounted and driven on like any other tire. You will have to rotate it regularly with your other four tires so that it wears similarly.
