What are the Differences Between Spare Tires?

Even the most durable tires can suffer a flat. Driving over a nail in the highway is not uncommon. Other issues can cause a flat. Replacing a flat with a spare provides at least a partial solution to the problem. What kind of spare are you putting on the tire, though? Some spares are compact ones, and others are full-sized. Significant differences exist between the two.

A full-sized tire is identical in size to the four currently on the vehicle. Sometimes, people choose a full-sized spare that is an identical brand to the other four. Driving on a full-sized tire won't likely bring the problems traveling on a compact-temporary one does.

A compact tire only contains 60 PSI and is much smaller than a full-sized tire. These tires are temporary ones, and many restrictions are in place due to the potential for a blowout.
