  • No, not mine... my car's!

    How long can/should you drive with a spare? I ran over a nail and got a flat yesterday while we were out. It's on the back.

    Luckily it's under warrantee still so I get a free replacement, but I have to wait until Friday because they had to order it for me.

  • If your spare tire is a "real" tire and not one of those little ones you can use it for as long as you need as long as it's in good condition. Works better if it matches the other 3 though...

  • yes - the little donuts are ONLY to be used to get you to the nearest gas station (and they have speed limits of 30mph I think on them).
    the full-sized tires can be used like a regular tire.

  • Ok, it was one of those little ones.. but I've since called my dad and he's got a full size one (he's got a car the same as mine) so it's getting changed first thing in the am.
