What’s the Difference Between Full-Size and Compact Spare Tires?

Many vehicles that we sell on our lot come equipped with a spare tire of some sort. Depending on the type of vehicle that you choose, your spare tire could be a compact temporary tire or a full-size spare. These are two very different options. Let’s take a closer look at how they differ.

A compact temporary tire should only be used in an emergency. You can’t drive on these types of tires for more than a few miles. Get the tire on and head to the nearest service center to have your vehicle repaired.
