Understanding Spare Tire Differences

You can never predict when you will be in a situation in which you will need a spare tire to rescue you from road troubles. It is important to understand the difference between a temporary donut tire and a full-size spare tire.

Compact donut tires usually have speed limitations and are designed for restricted use. These tires should only be used to get you to a safe place where you can install the full-size replacement tire. When these temporary tires are in use, certain advanced functions of your vehicle such as adaptive cruise control may be negated. The smaller dimensions and higher inflation pressure requirements are not designed for long-term use.
