Re: how fast on a spare??

> says max of 50 MPH)?  

I would be leery of going more than 50 mph, even though there is
probably a good margin of safety.

But some people obviously think otherwise.
A while back I was heading home from work on Interstate 495, happily
cruising at 75mph when a Taurus blows past in the fast lane with at
least a 15 mph speed differential. Lady driver, baby belted securely
into car seat, donut spare on right front!!!!
