Having a flat tire can be inconvenient at best but having a spare tire can make drivers feel more secure about continuing to travel. However, it’s important to know what kind of spare you’re using and how safe it will be for traveling distances. At Shingle Springs Honda, we want you to be as safe as possible on the road and are here to advise you on spare tires and tire safety.

Most new cars today come with a compact temporary spare tire. Because of their small size, they’re often called donuts. If you want a regular full-size spare tire, which is the same size as the other four tires on the car, you’ll typically have to buy them yourself. Compact temporary spare tires can affect certain features in your car, such as speedometer, traction control or ABS, and should only be used to get you home or to a service station.

We offer full tire replacement service and welcome the chance to service your vehicle. Pay us a visit at our Shingle Springs, CA dealership.
