What to Know About Your Spare Tire

Most of us have been there before: sitting on the side of the, a flat tire having just done its best to ruin our day. And then, just when you think things cannot get any worse…your car doesn’t come with a spare tire?!

Spare Kit

More and more people find themselves facing this problem every year. Carmakers are less and less likely to include a spare tire with their vehicles, with many instead providing a sealant kit—and some, nothing at all.

Does My Acura TLX Have a Spare Tire?

Acura drivers are fortunate in this regard. Every new Acura comes with either a spare tire or a tire sealant kit, depending on the drivetrain and trim package.

Some manufacturers have entirely eliminated spare tires from their lineups as they look to reduce weight and improve fuel economy. According to AAA research,

    “[O]ver the last dozen years automakers have been eliminating spare tires from their vehicles. Today, approximately 30 percent of new cars come without a spare (up from just 5 percent in 2006) and it is estimated there are more than 30 million cars on the road that lack a spare tire.”

That means there are over 30 million people out on the road who are unprepared to deal with an unexpected flat tire. Just because your vehicle doesn’t come with a spare tire doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to being stranded if a flat ever happens to you—or, worse yet, being the person stuck on the side of the highway waiting for a tow truck because of a blowout.
