How Far Can You Drive Your Toyota Camry on a Spare Tire?

When disaster strikes and you get a flat tire on your 2018 Toyota Camry, you are faced with the time-honored task of changing your tire on the side of the road. Temporary tires are a lightweight, less-reliable backup plan that makes it easier to maneuver, but many drivers want to know – how far can you drive your Toyota Camry on a spare tire? Equipped with a temporary spare tire, you will have a driving range of 50 miles before you should have your punctured tire repaired or replaced. Check your Toyota Owner’s Manual for more details.

Temporary spare tires are typically referred to as space-savers or donuts. Lightweight and compact, these temporary tires are easier for most drivers to lift and maneuver when needed, but are not designed for extended use. When your Toyota car or crossover is equipped with a temporary tire, you are limited to a top speed of 55 mph with a driving range that will be between 50 and 70 miles – far enough to get you home or to a trusted service department.

Which Toyota Models Have Temporary Spare Tires?

When you have a flat tire, your vehicle will typically have one of four spare tire options – a temporary spare tire, a full-size spare tire, run-flat tires that will go an extra 50 miles after a puncture or a tire patch kit. If you own a Toyota car, truck or crossover, it is important to know whether or not you have a temporary spare tire or a full-size spare tire.
