You have a spare tire in your trunk. Good enough, right? Well, actually, while it's great that you have a spare tire, you'll also be more prepared in the event that you need to use it if you already understand what kind of spare tire it is. "There's more than one kind?" you say. Yes, there is, and at Porsche Monterey, we love educating our customers on some basic vehicle maintenance knowledge.

A full-size spare tire is the same size as all of your other tires. In fact, you can even put it in the rotation of your other tires. One of the biggest benefits of this type of spare tire is that you don't have to worry about getting to a mechanic right away if you need to put on your spare tire.

Another kind of spare tire that you might have is the compact temporary tire. As the name suggests, you can only put it on for a short period of time. The upside is that it's smaller, so it's good for vehicles that have small trunks.
