Between 50-100 miles. It is not meant to be driven far. Just enough to get to a tire shop and get a new tire. Check out discounttires.com for the tire. I would search the web first. Conteau had some extra tires, hit him up.

$230!! Thats crazy! I'd buy all new tires and go w/ a 225 width. good luck shopping around and be careful on the doughnut.
