A Note on Spare Tires

Friday, June 11, 2010 by Tire Rack Team
Don't forget about them! They may be tucked away deep inside your trunk or some other discreet location out of sight and out of mind, but Tire Rack is here today to remind you that spare tire pressure is as important as the pressure in your everyday tires. Like a balloon a few days after the party, air inside your spare diminishes over time—essentially it goes flat, slowly but surely. And that's never a good thing when you rely on your spare when you actually get a flat tire. To make sure you're never left stranded with a double flat, we recommend you check your spare once a month to make sure it is ready for action. (Read more.)

Don't have a gauge? Check out our newest gauges from Intercomp. We think you'll find them to be quite handy, thanks to a swivel nozzle and a glow-in-the-dark face. Or, click here to see our entire list of gauges.

Regardless, share the air with that spare!

We do have some compact 'donut' spare tires. We do not have any of the compact spare wheels for them. We would need to know the specific spare tire size that you needed, as we do not have a database for them. -ben@tirerack.com
