Compact Temporary vs. Full-Size Spare Tires: Tire Guide

April 21st, 2018 by

If you get stuck on the side of the road, the first thing you will need is a spare tire. Changing a tire is relatively easy with a smaller, temporary tire. These compact tires sell for under $50. However, they are typically not long-lasting tires that you can use over and over again. They may last up to 50 miles, which is about enough mileage to get you to a shop and fix the original flat.

Otherwise, you can get a full-size tire that allows you to keep driving long distances just like with your other tires. A full-size spare is typically the fifth tire in the original set that allows you to balance the load of your vehicle and take longer drives without having to worry about getting another flat.
