What's the Difference Between a Donut Tire and a Full-Size Tire?

Have you ever needed to replace the tire on your vehicle with a spare? If you have, then you probably needed to know right away if you had a donut or a full-size spare tire. If you haven't, then you'll be wise to learn the difference. Some tires are built to only go a short distance before replacing it, and some are just like the other tires on your vehicle.

A compact temporary tire is only made to go short distances, usually 50 miles or less, before a regular tire is placed on your wheel. They also have speed limitations. A full-size spare tire is exactly the same as your other tires. The only thing you need to be aware of is that you might need to rotate it because it won't be as worn as the others.

We at Precision Acura of Princeton want you to know that we can help you get the tires that you need, so stop in today.
