Important Things to Know About Spare Tires

A spare tire comes in handy if you experience a flat, but it is important to know the differences between spare tires. Some late-model vehicles do not come with a spare, but it may be a good idea to invest in one before you are left stranded on the side of the road.

A full-size spare tire can be matching or non-matching. A matching spare tire is identical to the tires that you have on your vehicle. A non-matching spare tire is a full-size tire that does not match the tires on your vehicle. Typically, full-size spare tires can be used without limitations and can be replaced with permanent tires at your convenience.

A compact temporary spare tire is smaller in dimensions than a full-size spare tire and has speed limitations. They may also affect systems such as ABS and traction control. These tires should only be used to get you to a tire service facility. Pitre Kia of Las Cruces offers tire replacement service and wish all drivers safe travels.
