Choosing between a donut and a full-size spare tire

Are you prepared if one of your tires has an unexpected blowout? Having a spare tire in your car can help you get back on the road. There are two types of spares: full-size and compact temporary.

A full-size spare is just like the other tires on your car. When you put it on, you can drive your car normally, and the traction control and anti-lock brakes should work properly. The downside is that a full-size spare takes up a lot of room inside your car. A temporary compact 'donut' tire is narrower than a regular tire. Therefore, it takes up less space. The downside of a donut tire is that it isn't designed for long-term travel and should be replaced as soon as possible.
