Handling a Flat Tire

If you are unfortunate to have a flat tire while driving the roadways of Mississippi, you need to know a few things about your spare tire. If your spare tire is a donut tire, you must understand that it can only be a temporary substitution for a full-size tire.

Your donut tire should not be driven for more than seventy (70) miles. The donut tire is generally not reinforced, and it cannot protect itself from projectiles or side impacts.The donut tire has a smaller footprint than a full-size tire. As a result, it could adversely affect your steering and braking. The donut tire is designed as a short-term fix for your flat.

When driving with a donut tire, take special care while driving and make sure that you replace your tire as soon as possible.
