This is a pretty common question and I get a lot of conflicting responses from "Extremely dangerous could blow out at any minute" to "I've driven on it for a month". A mechanic at midas told me I could drive on it for a week and be fine.
I'm driving a 1993 Grand Am thats actually in fairly good condition. One of my tires cracked really badly on the side (I knew they were old and was going to replace them, all four).I had it swapped out for the donut tire but I don't know if it is safe for me to drive on the spare until the weekend.
I drive about 24 miles per day to get to and from work. It's the only place I drive to short of a subway just down the street for lunch. It's pretty cold right now and I hear the main danger for donuts is a blow out, reduced traction and more wear and tear.
So in this scenario, is it safe to drive on the donut until the weekend to have it replaced or should take time off in the morning to have it fixed?
This isn't a general question but more so a "In this exact scenario".
