On Saturday I had a flat tire. Pretty bad, second time on the same tire. Anyway, I put the spare on, it needed some air, and now I'm running the spare in the back, which is different from the other three tires.

Is it OK for me to get another tire like the spare. I figure if the two rear tires are the same, and the two front ones are same, that shouldn't pose a problem. My main issue is regarding the age of the tire. My car is a 2002. A 5-year-old tire? Does it make a difference? :dunno:

Thanks! :D

I agree with hosagod; running matched fronts and rears should be fine. As to the age of the tire, you should also be ok; five years isn't that old for tires nowadays.
