Can You Drive on a Donut Like a Full-Size Spare Tire?

January 26th, 2018 by

After you’ve had a spare tire, on many occasions, you may have gotten back on the road through the use of a compact temporary spare tire or “donut.” These donut tires are often stored in the trunk of your vehicle and are designed for easy storage and quick installation, even on the side of the road.

However, donut spare tires are also designed for limited-time use and driving at limited speeds. They are intended to help you drive in to get a full-size replacement tire for long-term driving. Extended use of donut tires can be a safety problem and lead to concerns with your car’s traction, braking and other systems.

You can return to your safe driving in Waite Park with the installation of a full-size replacement spare tire. McKay’s Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram FIAT offers friendly, efficient tire replacement services that can restore your vehicle to proper working order.
