The spare wheel on my Mazda CX 9:
This small wheel, also known as a wafer, is less bulky than a traditional wheel. It has the advantage of taking up less space on your Mazda CX 9, but at the expense of its level of resistance. In reality, it is only used in case of emergency, we recommend that you do not drive more than a few kilometers and that you do not exceed 80km/h because it can be not designed to resist too high speeds. Go to the closest garage as soon as possible. Also, be careful when cornering, as your Mazda CX 9 will be somewhat uneven because it can be thinner than the other wheels already in place.
