Re: Should I Go to Court for a Speeding Ticket
OK, so that is what you're saying.... What I am saying is that ^this^ is not the way it is supposed to work. The vehicle manufacturer(s) is not likely to equip a vehicle with a spare (even a compact spare) that isn't designed to support the vehicle at height as the others and one that isn't going to spin at the same rate as the other regular use tires on the vehicle. So what they do is (regardless of the size of the wheel (the metal part)) the size of the outside diameter of the rubber tire matches the outside diameter of the regular use of the tires that come with the vehicle.
In other words:
The width of the tire actually is much smaller (and hence the use of "compact" in the way its described) where as it will support the vehicle at the same height as the other regular use tires, and it would spin at the same rate and hence = no speed variation.
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
