Should You Drive on A Donut Tire?

Changing a tire can be difficult. What's even more difficult is knowing the differences between the different types of spare tires you may come across. This is why we here at Lithia Volkswagen of Reno in Reno, NV want to be sure that you as a car owner know the basics about spare tires.

The two types of spare tires you will likely find in the trunk of your car are full-size spare tires and compact temporary spare tires. A compact temporary spare tire is more commonly known as a donut tire. It is far smaller than a true spare tire and thus usually comes with speed restrictions. It should be noted that driving on donut spares for an extended period of time can be dangerous as they are not meant for extended use.

We here at Lithia Volkswagen of Reno in Reno, NV wish you safe travels and our service department is always here to help with any tire replacement needs.
