Spare Tires: Know Your Options

Have you ever had a flat tire? Yes, it's a pain, and, if you had a spare tire, you were probably glad that you had prepared. But did you know that there are different kinds of spare tires and that there are pros and cons to both? There are compact temporary spare tires and full-size spare tires. Which one you choose is dependent on your vehicle and your preferences.

The benefits of a compact temporary spare tire is that they take up less space and are lighter than a full-size spare. On the down side, they can only be driven on long enough for you to reach a repair shop. A full-size spare tire can be the exact same tire that you have on all four wheels, so if you have to switch it in, you can drive on that tire like all of your other tires. The down side is that they are bulkier and heavier.
