Did you know that spare tires operates at a higher PSI than standard tires? Compact spare tires typically require 60 psi. If it’s less than 55 psi, it’s pretty much useless and can pop off the rim. Full size spares for trucks and SUVs can be between 32-38 psi, up to 60 psi. Always read the markings on the spare to get the actual pressure requirement. Also, never inflate your tire to the max psi. Otherwise, you’ll risk a blowout, and you’ll reduce your ability to control the car since handling and braking will be much worse. So to be extra safe, pressure your tire just a few PSI below the specified amount. Lastly, check the PSI in your spare at every tire rotation, or every 6,000 to 8,000 miles.
