Temporary spare tyres

What are Temporary Spare Tyres and how should they be used?

Temporary Spare tyres can be recognized by the "T" for "Temporary" in front of the tyre size description.

For example: T135/90R16

Temporary spare tyres may only be used in an emergency as one wheel of the vehicle.

Do not operate your vehicle with more than one temporary spare in use. A temporary spare may only be used at the limited speed (max 80km/h or max 50mph) as indicated on the sidewall and/or the label attached to the tyre/wheel.

As it is designed for temporary use it should be removed and replaced with a conventional tyre/wheel assembly as soon as possible.
