Nearly everyone here in Norwood, MA has experienced a flat tire. When your tire is flat, you'll need to replace it temporarily until getting a replacement. Your vehicle may have come with a compact temporary spare, or "donut." Does this work as well as a full-size spare?

A compact temporary spare tire is designed for emergencies. The advantages of these tires are that they are very lightweight, and they do not take up much room. However, it is important to note that they are only designed to drive you to where you can fix or replace your normal tire.

Driving at certain speeds and for long distances on a donut can be dangerous. These tires also tend to throw-off certain features on your vehicle, such as your traction control and ABS. It can even cause your speedometer to give you inaccurate readings. At Herb Chambers Lincoln of Norwood, we invite you to visit us for all of your tire needs so that you can stay safe out there.
