Yes and I check it before going out of town by pushing hard on it.

My newer cars signal me when to check tire pressures, It's usually the spare that is low.

I check it occasionally to make sure it's hard. I have a 12v pump that can boost it in case it needs it for a flat.

I check mine every few months. The compact spares are typically inflated to about 60 PSI so pushing on it is not a good indicator. Even if it's 10-15 PSI low it is still going to feel pretty stiff.

Good Morning Tommyguns45,

What is the question you're asking here? I think it is 'do you have a spare tire, but...'

Please clarify your Topic :-).

Thanks - MGY

It needs to be checked with a Tire Pressure Guage

That means nothing unless you take a tire gauge and test the PSI in it.
