Know Your Type of Spare Tire

Manufacturers today use several types of spare tires. Most autos have either a full-sized spare or a compact spare. The full-sized spare matches the set that came with the vehicle. The compact tire is a space saving, smaller tire for emergency use. The manufacturer provides information on the safe speeds and distances for the “donut” spare.

Longmont-area drivers reduce speed and drive carefully on the compact spare. It does not steer, turn, or feel like a regular tire. The compact tire helps to get to a full-sized repair or replacement.

At Frontier Honda, we want everyone to have a safe driving experience. Good tires are essential for safe operation of every type of vehicle. When you need to repair or replace a tire, please call us. We have a wide range of tires to meet your manufacturer’s recommendations. Please call or drop by our location today.
