What You Should Know About Your Spare

How much do you know about the spare tire in your car? If you experience a flat, having a spare tire can help to keep you from being stranded. Here is some information you should know about your spare.

A compact temporary, sometimes called a donut, is smaller than the rest of your tires. This type is common on smaller cars and sedans because it can be stored in a space beneath your trunk.

With donut spares you will also need to drive at slower speeds, typically under 50 mph depending on the tire. In an emergency it can get you to the nearest service center to get a replacement tire.

If you drive a truck or SUV, you might have a full sized spare tire since there’s more space to store one. We want you to have safe travels while on the road, but when you find yourself in an emergency, our team at Scherer Lincoln located in Peoria can help to get you back on the road.
