  • Flat tire safety. Did you know?

    Did you know?
    If you  have a flat tire, and need to put on a small spare, (commonly called a donut), here is some information you may not know.
    1.  Don’t go over 50 miles per hour, and 35 miles per hour is safer.
    2. The small spare is meant for emergency use only and is only good for about 50 miles.  So try not to travel farther than that.
    3.   If you have a long way to travel, it is safer if you put the ‘donut’ on the back.  Especially if you have front wheel drive.
    4.  If you have to traveling a great distance, it might be best to call for help, perhaps a tow truck.
    5.  Some vehicles have room for a full size spare, you may look into purchasing one.
