When you have a flat tire, you need to get it changed so you don't do additional damage. Driving with a flat can damage the tire and the wheel, and it can lead to poor handling. Putting on your spare tire is the correct first step. But what should you do next?

If you have a "donut", which is a compact temporary tire found on many sedans, you need to be careful. Donuts are smaller than standard tires and have been designed for limited use at certain speeds. You should get a full-size tire put on as soon as possible. Most SUVs and trucks come with full size spares so they can carry the heavy load of the vehicle properly.
