There's a good chance that at some point while you are driving in Iowa City, IA, you are going to have a flat tire. When dealing with a flat, it's important to know the difference between a compact temporary spare tire and a full-size one.

A compact temporary spare tire, often referred to as a "doughnut," is pretty much just what it sounds like. It is a smallish tire that is meant to act as an emergency replacement if you get a flat. Typically, it's recommended that you drive no more than 50 miles on the temporary tire before getting it replaced with a permanent one.

A full-size spare is a regular tire that goes on your vehicle. If you use a full-size spare it does not need to be replaced, although you should have it checked out after putting it on your vehicle.
