When you buy your car, you may notice right away that it has a spare tire either in its trunk, in an under-seat compartment, or attached to the underside of your vehicle. Before you start driving away from the dealership, you need to know what kind of tire you have and for how long you can use it. These details can help you know the difference between a compact temporary and full-size spare tire.

A compact temporary tire is otherwise known as a doughnut tire. A doughnut is designed to be used for only a short period of time. It is not advisable that you drive more than just a few days or more than 50 miles on it.

A full-size replacement tire is just that, a full-size tire that can replace one of the other ones on your vehicle. It can be driven for as long as needed.
