What types of spare tires are available?

Modern vehicles come with many forms of spare tires. It is important for the driver/owner of a vehicle to know what type of spare tire they have and how to mount them. Each manufacturer analyzes the needs of each model of vehicles they produce and decides what type of spare tire to include with the package or if not to include a spare tire at all.

There are four principal types of spare tires available. Most drivers prefer the full-size matching spare tire that is an exact copy of the tires on the car. Others prefer the Full-size temporary spares that are the same size tire, but the wheel construction is lighter and less durable. Many manufacturers include a temporary compact spare with a little tread and light wheel construction, and a few use the folding temporary spare.
