Compact Temporary Spare Tire vs. Full-Size Spare Tire

Unlike in the past when spare tires were the same size as what was on the vehicles, today new cars provide compact temporary spare tires. These spares are often referred to as donuts because of their small size. If you’re in need of a spare tire or have tire-related concerns, stop at Cavender Toyota and speak with one of our qualified staff.

Compact temporary spare tires are designed for temporary use only. They are a smaller size, have less air pressure and are affected differently by speed. Driving with them on longer than necessary can be bad for your vehicle and dangerous.

Whether you’re in need of a spare or need a complete set of tires, play it safe and visit us in San Antonio. We carry a full line of tires as well as other automotive services. Call for an appointment or visit us today and drive safe!
