How Do I Change a Tire on My Car?

11) Drive Carefully

The compact spare tires found on most cars are not designed to be driven at high speeds or over long distances. Look at the limitations listed in your owner’s manual and follow them or else you risk another breakdown, without another spare to put on your vehicle.

Many are limited to 50 miles of driving at 50 miles per hour or below. If you are lucky enough to have one of the few cars still sold with a full-size spare tire, you can drive as you normally would.
