What's the Condition of Your Spare Tire?

Does your vehicle have a Spare Tire?

In the event that your vehicle does have a spare assembly, whether it be full size or a compact, do you know the condition?

Like other tires, a spare tire can be impacted from exposure to UV, from heat, and other conditions. To avoid having spare tire troubles, check out our write-up linked below and if you're in need of a replacement spare or an entire spare assembly, shoot us a PM and we'll make sure you're taken care of!

I just put a brand new can of Fix-A-Flat in the trunk and made sure the compressor worked, I figured 7 years was long enough for the can that came with the car.

I always buy 5 tires at a time, one spare and I rotate them as 5 tire rotation.

Well, my mule is keeping the ugly narrow rim from rusting, nothing more.
