Honda 2013 Fit doughnut 3-2-13

A close-up of the "Doughnut", the spare tire that came with my father's 2013 Honda Fit (...and since his death in July 2013, now mine...) Honda says that you should a) only run 55 MPH maximum; and b) run a maximum of 55 miles; when this is installed on the car. There are places in Nevada where b) isn't possible - as it's more than 55 miles between towns! (the Lovelock-Winnemucca stretch of I-80 comes to mind...) This doughnut is also supposed to be kept inflated to 60 PSI - and I bet that most aren't - how many owners check inflation on their spare? (And how often do they do it, IF they do it?) Taken in San Francisco, CA by a Nikon D40x at ISO 400 with a Sigma 17-70mm ƒ 2.8-4 OS HSM macro lens. (at 17) Camera's on-board flash fired, causing the part-moon shadow at lower center...

 

I have no idea where you get replacement tires for this, BTW!
