A Flat Tire is Inconvenient but Knowing the Type of Spare Helps

Are you aware of the difference between the types of spare tires manufacturers use for vehicles? Some vehicles have a full-size spare tire while others will have a compact spare tire.

A compact spare tire, also known as a “donut” is very lightweight and does not take up a lot of room in your vehicle. However, a full-size tire is bulky and can sometimes require additional help when changing. The donut is designed for convenience and flexibility but not for longer traveling. Once you replace the flat tire with the donut, it’s not recommended to travel above the maximum miles before reinstalling a full-size tire.

We can replace your tires for you at St. Marys Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat. The service advisor staff will be happy to assist you with scheduling an appointment at our Kersey location or you can feel free to use our online service scheduler.
