What is a full-size matching spare tire?

Your vehicle comes with an owner’s manual. A quick glance at the manual informs you of the tire size recommendation for your vehicle. Your full-size spare tire, often bolted inside your trunk, is a tire in that size already installed on a replica of the wheels your car uses on its regular tires.

When you are equipped with a full-size spare tire, you have an actual spare of the same model and make of the tire recommended for your vehicle by the manufacturer. The advantage of replacing one tire with the same tire is obvious. However, the wheel is the same as those wheels on your vehicle and is, therefore, heavier than other spare tires. You also need to check the tire pressure in full-size spares when you check your regular tires to make sure it is ready when needed.
