Fix a Flat | Bixby Tires

When one of your Bixby tires goes flat, you need the professionals in Bixby tires at Same Day to help you get back on the road.

It's definitely not shaping up to be a good day. You came out to go to work and found...your car has a flat tire. You're lucky because you have a spare - many cars these days don't come with spares. But it's not a "real" tire, it's one of those so-called donut spares. Now you're wondering if you can leave the "donut" on for a few days while you go to work, run errands and go to some fun events, like the Avett Brothers concert.

That's a valid concern. As autoblog.com says about "donut" spares: "These tires are not designed for long-range service. They are made to get you to a garage to have your tire either repaired or replaced. Driving on it for an extended period of time under regular driving conditions will result in a blowout in short order, so get a safe tire on your car immediately."

More specifically, autoblog,com offers these comments about donut spares: "Donut spare tires are not made for extended service. They have no tread to speak of; the carcass or body of the tire is not reinforced and there is no tread belt to protect it from projectiles and road imperfections. The tire is designed simply to get you to a repair facility. ...

"You may notice poor cornering, handling, and braking characteristics. The donut spare has a smaller footprint than a conventional tire, which translates into diminished braking, roadholding and handling. With the donut spare in place, you may find that, when braking, the vehicle dips to the side where the donut was mounted. Also, you may notice the vehicle pulling to that side."
