Tips for Using Small Spare Tires

Today, many automakers install compact spare tires in their late model vehicles. The small size and lower weight help save space and reduce overall weight. The small spare is different from a full-sized tire; the compact tire is safe to use at low speeds and over a limited distance.

Calgary-area drivers know that the small tire affects steering, gas mileage, and braking. They must use extra care and get a repair or replacement for the flat tire as soon as possible. The compact is only temporary; manufacturers intend them as a way to get home or to a nearby repair facility.

At Eastside Kia, we want every driver to ride on full-sized tires that are in good condition. We offer a wide selection of quality tires that meet the manufacturer's requirements. Call us if you need to repair or replace one or more tires. Please call or drop by today.
