How long can you drive on a spare tire ?

Every driver hopes they'll never have a flat. But if that day comes, you need to know how long you can drive with your car's spare tire.

The spare tire enables you to drive to the nearest repair shop to have the flat tire inspected and either repaired or replaced. You should not drive over 50 mph and no more than 50 miles with a donut-type spare tire. Driving for long distances on a spare tire can potentially cause damage to other car parts, including the transmission.
How long can you drive on a spare tire ?

A Full-Size Spare

If the spare is a full-size tire, given that it is the same size and type as the ones in your vehicle, you can drive it like a regular tire and use it until it wears out. You may think that the spare tire will be like a new one if you don’t use it. This is not true. If it is in your trunk for more than 5 years, you should check it thoroughly for cracks, holes, and pressure before attaching it to the wheels.
Many pickups and SUVs carry the spare tires under or back of them. Keeping them out in the open increases the chance of damage by road debris and UV ray. In that case, inspecting them once in a month should be a regular procedure.

Donut Spare

If the spare tire is smaller in size (a donut tire), you should drive it only the distance required to cross to take the car to a service shop as you should do it as soon as possible. Some of these tires also have a maximum mileage and speed rating. Check the tire’s sidewalls for these max limits and replace it with a full-size one before crossing them.
A donut is an elementary tire that the manufacturers produce for saving space and cost. It is undersized, is built around a basic steel rim, and has very little tread. They are vulnerable and highly susceptible to all types of damage.

A Run-Flat Spare

This type is rising in popularity as the manufacturers see it as a solution between the costly full-size tires and the rudimentary donut tires. You will find them with the recent models of MINI and BMW. These are tough, built to endure most road hazards, and can go on nearly 50 miles even after a puncture. However, they are costlier than a traditional full-size tire.
