Do You Know the Difference Between Compact and Full-Size Spare Tires?

When you get a flat tire on the road, you might open up the trunk to see what's inside. It is important to know if you have a compact temporary or a full-size spare tire. These are two different parts, and they have different limitations.

A full-size spare tire can be driven on just like your other tires. A compact spare cannot be driven on in same way. It is designed for speeds of no more than 40 miles per hour. They require more air pressure, and your anti-lock brakes might not work with the spare.
