    Re: Stupid donut spare self destructed

    Since I had time to kill again today I weighed both space saver and full sized spare tires
    Space saver steel rim inflated to 60psi weighs in around 38 lbs
    Alloy rim with full size tire inflated to 30psi weighs in around 48 lbs
    Sooo ten lbs or so difference not too bad, just wish it would fit in spare tire well. I keep it upside down and throw misc crap in it, perfect spot for baseballs that are always rolling around the trunk.

    Re: Stupid donut spare self destructed

    .....am I the only one who's gotten about 20 miles on two spare tires, without them exploding, and at around 30 mph of speed?




    Someone slashed two of my brand new Michelins and I had to use one from my Seville and one from my Deville to get to the tire place. Two on the driver's side. I moved the good one on the right rear side to the left front, and then put two donuts as rear wheels.

    I think tire slashers should hae something *ahem* valuable of theirs removed by knife. That is just LOW.

    I put 6 miles on the spare on my safari van (hit a curb and gashed the right rear) then had to drive about 10 miles with the same spare on my lesabre (right front tire had the tread delaminate at 60 mph on the highway and of course the full size spare didn't hold air anymore because the tire was older than me.)

    If I recall correctly it's bad for the car to run the spare on the drive wheels. You should move a rear tire to the front when needed for a flat in the front on a FWD car.
