The spare wheel on my Toyota Sienna:
This small wheel, usually known as a wafer, is less bulky than a conventional wheel. It has the benefit of taking up less space on your Toyota Sienna, but at the expense of its level of resistance. In fact, it is only utilized in case of emergency, we recommend that you do not drive more than a few kilometers and that you do not exceed 80km/h considering that it can be not designed to resist too high speeds. Go to the nearest garage as soon as possible. Also, be careful when ever cornering, as your Toyota Sienna will be slightly uneven because it can be thinner than the other wheels already in place. Also make sure that the pressure of your wheel disc is checked regularly to avoid keeping an unusable spare wheel on your Toyota Sienna.

The anti puncture kit on my Toyota Sienna:
As its name implies, this one will enable you to fix a small puncture (with a coagulant liquid) and to re-inflate in the short term (using a small compressor that you link up to the cigarette lighter) in order to drive to the nearest garage with your Toyota Sienna. Be careful however, you cannot drive forever with this system. We recommend that you do not exceed 80km/h and about 200km in order not to take risks. Obviously, if you notice a too big opening in the tire of your Toyota Sienna, do not take unnecessary risks, the kit will not be able to repair everything. If the hole is bigger than 5 millimeters, it will be very difficult to plug it, considering that the air pressure is too high.
