Temporary Spares

Q: How fast can you drive on a temporary spare?

A: Most temporary spare tires are designed for a maximum speed of 50 mph. Only use this type of tire to reach a facility that can repair or replace your original tire. Before returning your spare to the storage location, check the air pressure. It is common that the air pressure in a temporary spare is higher than in your regular tires. Always read the owner’s manual and tire sidewall for specific information.
