Now that we own a major part of Chrysler and GM it is time for us to make some demands. Forget about fuel efficiency or EPA standards. I am interested in a full sized spare tire. They replaced the full sized spare tire with the donut tire. The donut tire is not meant to be driven long distances and most of them have a maximum speed of 50 mph. Useless. We old guys remember a day when your spare tire matched the tires and wheels that came with the car exactly. When you had a flat, you changed the tire and your car did not look like a misfit until you got your flat fixed. You just left on the spare and repaired the flat tire at your convenience. Let’s demand the return of the full sized spare tire.
