Important Information about Goodyear Radial Spare Tires
Checking Your Spare Tire
When checking your spare tire, the first thing you need to known is where it's located. In most cars, the spare is located under the floor of the trunk. Many crossovers, SUVs, and trucks have the spare bolted underneath the vehicle. If you can't determine where your spare is, look in your vehicle owner's manual. If you still can't find it, you may not have a spare. In that case, it's a good idea to purchase one. Goodyear radial spare tires are an excellent option. If you can locate your spare, examine it for cracks, tears, or other kinds of damage that causes serious tire failure. If you find any damage or are unsure about the quality of your spare, you should replace it or head to your local auto dealership to have a service technician help you out.
If You Experience a Flat
In the unfortunate event of a flat tire, you may have to change your tire. If at all possible, get your vehicle to the side of the road or a safe location to do so. However, you should not drive on a completely flat tire. This can cause severe damage to your rim and, potentially, the rest of your vehicle.

Driving on a Spare Tire
If you have a new Goodyear radial spare on your vehicle, don't worry. It's a high quality spare. However, there are restrictions to how you can drive on it. Generally, you can drive on spare tires for up to 50 miles at speeds up to 50 miles per hour, but each spare may have different specifications. Check the sidewall of the spare for the specific limitations.
