What can I use instead of a spare tire?
Run flat tires are the most well-known and traditional alternative to using a spare tire system. They are specially designed with reinforced sidewall (or internal support rings), which allow drivers to safely drive their vehicle for a limited distance on a punctured or ruptured tire.
Can you buy a full size spare tire?
Having a full-size spare means buying a set of five tires for your car, instead of four, so you have a normal tire ready to go if something happens. The major advantage to having a full-size spare is that it’s not a temporary fix. You can put on a full-size spare to replace the flat and continue with your day.
