Almost every Traverse City driver has probably experienced a flat tire. Even if you don't change the tire yourself, you should probably know what types of spare tires there are and how each is used. Check out a brief summary of the two main kinds.

A compact temporary spare tire is what many people know as a donut. This type of spare is ideal for use in small vehicles. It doesn't take up much room, and it's lightweight. Because of its small size and construction, you will need to take special care when using it. You won't want to drive too fast or far on a donut.

A full-size spare tire can be used pretty much like you would a regular tire. It can be driven on for quite a while and even added to your vehicle's tire rotation schedule. However, its size takes up significant cargo space.
