Choosing Between Compact and Donut Tires

If you get a flat tire, you have two options for fixing it. First, you can opt for a compact spare that is often called a donut. Alternatively, you can opt for a full-size spare. The full-size spare is generally just an extra tire that will match the others already on the vehicle.

Once the matching tire has been put on, there are generally no restrictions as to how you can driver the vehicle. However, you may want to make a stop at a service station to buy a replacement for the damaged tire. With a compact tire, you generally have 55 miles or so to get to a service station.

Bringing your vehicle to Lithia Hyundai of Anchorage in Anchorage, AK may help you fix your tire problem. It may also be possible to have routine service such as a tire rotation completed while you are at the service center.
