Spare tire/donut??

Got a flat tire tonight on the highway and had to use my spare for the first time.

Is it a one time use thing and "throw" it away or can it be reused?

It can be re-used but try get a new tire ASAP. Too many people use their spare as a regular tire, and they end up with a messed up spare.

Spare tires are for temporary use only.

spares are good for many uses, but don't ride it too long.

Make sure u don't go over the limit on the spare tire. Some tells u 60 max and some 80 max. So take a look at what it calls for and try not to go on the highway with it. Try and put the spare tire at the back if u can.
