Yeah was it one of those Donut spares that probably says not to take it on the interstate...

I'm happy my spare is a fullsize tire, lol.

Those spares are stupid. What good is it if I can't take it on the highway? What if thats where I pop my first one, and I don't want to wait 2+ hours for AAA?

Not my fault my car is fast


Haha, actually, it happened because the nut locks on my rims only go on about half an inch when I use the spare. It shook loose.

I'd hate for that to happen!
Didn't it send your car hurtling into another direction suddenly?

You're lucky, you know that?
If one tire suddenly went, you'd expect physics to come into play, and since the other tyres are still spinning at high speed, send the car to the left, or spin if the rim hits the road.
