The general guidelines are that you shouldn't exceed 50 MPH for more than 50 miles with a compact spare. Also, the spare tire won't allow the car to handle as securely as a normal tire. I'd recommend only keeping it on for a day or so...Normal highway/ interstate driving 55 MPH - 80 MPH+ isn't best suited at all for the spare.

You're welcome :) Hope you can get the tire replaced soon! Until then, just stay in the right lane on highways and drive at a moderate speed. If it's raining or the roads are wet at all, exercise EXTRA caution!

I just went to the Lexus dealer. They told me that the spare is a full tire. It is not temporary. However, I do think some ES350 come with temporary spare as the user manual indicates. I guess the manual should make it clearer on how to figure out it is temporary or not.
