Compact Spares Save Space

Today, many automakers equip their vehicles with compact spares rather than full-sized tires. The compact spare increases interior room. Saving space is an important part of the design of compact vehicles. The difference between the compact and full-sized spare also involves driving. Compact spares have limits on speed and distance. Automakers design them as an emergency tire to get the vehicle back on the road.

Most drivers know it is essential to have a spare in good condition. A full sized spare works like a regular tire. The temporary tire or "donut" can help get the vehicle to a repair facility to fix the flat tire.

At Jeff Smith Kia, we want every vehicle to have good tires. Call us when you need to repair or replace one or more tires. We have a wide selection of tires that meet the manufacturer's requirements. Please call or drop by our location today.
