The risk of having a flat is there every time that you get on the road in Abilene. Are you prepared? If you have a full-size spare, you will have more time to get the flat replaced and it's aesthetically matched to your vehicle. However, a compact temporary spare, which is more commonly known as a “donut,” should only be used for a limited number of miles.

A “donut” is considerably easier to maneuver and that is a huge benefit. But that’s where the benefits end! The spare does not provide a comfortable ride and does not look that great on your vehicle. It is very unsafe to use the “donut” on a long-term basis. There is decreased handling ability. And it should not be used at a speed higher than 50 m.p.h. or the speed determined by the manufacturer.
