Chevrolet Cobalt Owners Manual: Compact Spare Tire

WARNING:
Driving with more than one compact spare tire at a time could result in loss of braking and handling.

This could lead to a crash and you or others could be injured. Use only one compact spare tire at a time.

This vehicle may have a compact spare tire.

Although the compact spare tire was fully inflated when the vehicle was new, it can lose air after a time.

Check the inflation pressure regularly. It should be 60 psi (420 kPa).

After installing the compact spare on the vehicle, if the vehicle has one, stop as soon as possible and make sure the spare tire is correctly inflated. The compact spare is made to perform well at speeds up to 65 mph (105 km/h) for distances up to 3,000 miles (5 000 km), so you can finish your trip and have the full-size tire repaired or replaced at your convenience. Of course, it is best to replace the spare with a full-size tire as soon as possible. The spare tire will last longer and be in good shape in case it is needed again.

Notice: When the compact spare is installed, do not take the vehicle through an automatic car wash with guide rails. The compact spare can get caught on the rails which can damage the tire, wheel and other parts of the vehicle.

Do not use the compact spare on other vehicles.

And do not mix the compact spare tire or wheel with other wheels or tires. They will not fit. Keep the spare tire and its wheel together.

Notice: Tire chains will not fit the compact spare.

Using them can damage the vehicle and can damage the chains too. Do not use tire chains on the compact spare.
