Choose the Right Spare: Compact vs. Full Size

If your car breaks down due to a flat, you always want to have a spare tire. There are a number of ways to get cheaper tires that you only have for an emergency. Compact, temporary spare tires are just that. It is a temporary solution to a flat tire that gets you from point A to point B.

Spare tires are not always marked as such. Some customers even choose to purchase a spare tire that is the exact same manufacturer and size as their other tires. Full-size spare tires are going to offer more tread and cost a bit more.

This is because they are higher quality and last longer than a compact, spare tire. The service department should mark any temporary tire with a "T." You can always ask the tire team at Lithia Hyundai of Fresno for what to purchase for your car. Even if you are trying to save money, you may get more out of a full-size spare.
