 Given there seems to be more folklore than fact, here's some informed articles on Space Saver spare tires:




I can't find it, but Car and Driver, well over 20 years ago, did skid pad tests with a couple of cars with 4 space saver donuts each. They were surprised how well they did, but then again, they were expecting (as was I) to have a really poor handling car. The handling was fine, the dry grip was not impressive!!
