Frequently Asked Questions?

Limit your speed, avoid overloading, and keep to short distances. Temporary or compact spare tires are not designed for high speeds. Most manufacturers recommend driving at speeds no greater than 50-55 mph when using a temporary spare.

You should drive no more than 50 miles on a temporary or donut spare tire if possible. If you absolutely must go longer, avoid driving more than 70 miles. A spare tire isn’t meant to completely replace a tire but to tide you over until you can properly replace it.

The overall diameter and width of our spare tire are listed on our website. It’s important to measure your vehicle’s wheel well before purchasing to ensure that our spare tire fits. We cannot guarantee it will fit your specific wheel well, as insufficient data is available on popular websites.

Since many newer vehicles do not have wheel wells, we provide a premium spare wheel carrying bag with handles for storing the EZ Spare in your vehicle’s trunk area.

The EZ Spare Wheel is compatible with the BMW M series and does not require a spacer.

Our 20-inch spare wheel is designed to accommodate large brake calipers and modern brake systems. It is compatible with AMG, Brembo, or any performance vehicle. Depending on the size of the factory tires, it is suitable for vehicles with 18-inch, 19-inch, 20-inch, 21-inch, and 22-inch wheels. Consumers would be extremely satisfied with this well-designed, safe spare wheel and tire.

Yes, the most important measurement of any spare tire/wheel combination is the overall or “rolling” diameter. Our recommended match will be within 5% or less of both diameters, which is the acceptable industry variance. We guarantee it will be safe and compatible with your vehicle’s drivetrain.

All the driving tests we performed on many brands resulted in no significant handling issues. By matching tire sizes to the EZ Spare tire sizes, we confirm that the rolling diameters are within OEM specs and will not cause any adverse reactions to the vehicle drivetrain or ABS system.

The EZ Spare Wheel has been tested by leading OEM wheel testing companies in Europe and the US. Both laboratories confirmed the wheels’ safety and durability.

The 17″ EZ Spare Wheel with three sizes of space-saver tires fits thousands of vehicles with 16″, 17″, 18″, and 19″ wheel/tire sizes because the diameter of the EZ Spare tire is within OEM’s recommended specifications for a temporary spare tire size. Our 17″ tire sizes match up to thousands of 16″, 17″, 18″, and 19″ OEM tire sizes in overall rolling diameter and fit many of these vehicles perfectly. We recommend calling us, emailing, or using to compare the recommended EZ Spare tire size to the vehicle’s tire size if there is any question about the appropriate size recommended for any vehicle. It should not be assumed our 17″ wheel does not fit your 16″, 17″, 18″, or 19″ wheel vehicle.
