The Difference Between Temporary Tires and Full-Size Spares

The Difference Between Temporary Tires and Full-Size Spares

A compact temporary tire, also known as a "donut", is designed as an emergency spare that you only use for short driving distances. These tires have shallow tread depths and light-weight construction when you compare them to full-size tires.

Many cars do not come equipped with a spare tire. Therefore, you should know what size tire your car requires when you start shopping for a spare. For example, compact temporary tires can affect your car's traction, driving capability, and all-wheel drive since it is built for emergencies only. Full-size spares, on the other hand, will not affect your car's driving capabilities if you have a tire that meets your car's specifications. It is always best to find a spare that meets your vehicle's tire specifications.
