Very good advice! The "Space Saver" spare usually requires about 60 psi (check tire to be sure!) I check mine occasionally. I do a lot of highway driving. When I check the spare in a used car I bought it had 20 psi(This would surely upset Oggy!). It would not be very safe that underinflated. Tire was probably never checked since car was new.

P.S. I've been lucky, only had to use space saver a couple times but when I do I always put it on a rear wheel(if flat is on front, raise car in rear put space saver on rear then raise front and replace flat with full size.) Takes about 5 minutes longer but what's 5 minutes compared to a life?

Have a safe one..............
