Your vehicle has a spare tire that will come in handy when you get a flat or a blowout. There are two types of tires available. First, there is a full-size spare tire. The other type of tire is the compact, otherwise known as the donut tire. You will want to distinguish the difference between the two in emergency situations.

Because of its small size, a compact spare tire will not be suitable for long-distance driving. Also, you should not drive a compact tire over a certain speed. Only use the compact spare tire to drive to a location to get a full-size tire. A full-size spare tire will match your vehicle's recommended tire sizes. This tire can be driven at highway speeds over a long distance.

Shop for full-size spare tires at LaFontaine Volvo Cars of Farmington Hills. You will find these tires available at affordable prices. These tires are available in many sizes and can fit just about any type of vehicle.
