Explore the Differences Between Full-Size and Compact Spare Tires

Most vehicles that are currently on the market come equipped with a spare tire of some sort. This spare tire is located somewhere on or in your vehicle. If you experience a flat tire or other tire-related issue, you can switch that damaged tire out for your spare. This will give you some time to get your issue fixed. The type of spare tire that you have depends on the model vehicle. Some vehicles come equipped with a full-size spare tire. There are other models that come with a compact temporary option.

A compact temporary tire shouldn't be driven on for more than a few miles. You will use this tire to get you to the next service station or tire shop. The full-size spare can be used ongoing. You'll want to replace your spare tire at some point though.
