Important details about compact spare tires

Compact spare tires have a limited top speed, which will be written on the tire’s sidewall. Don’t exceed that. Compact spares also have limited road life, so use them only long enough to get home or to the nearest service station or tire store. If your vehicle has a full-size spare, there’s no problem.
