Are There Different Spare Tires?

No one wants to get a flat tire, but a puncture on the road may lead to one. With the right spare tire, a driver can be back on the road with little delay. Do not confuse a donut spare with a full-size one, though. The two are quite different.

A matching full-size spare really isn't different from the primary tires on the vehicle. It can serve as a reliable replacement. A non-matching full-size spare, however, isn't identical to the other three and should be replaced by one that is. Donut spares are compact versions of a full-sized tire. These tires are, essentially, only intended for getting the vehicle to a garage. These tires won't last long and can suffer a blowout at relatively low speeds.
