Changing a Tire Is a Necessary Skill

Replacing a flat tire can seem like an intimidating task, but it doesn't have to be if you are prepared for the eventuality of having a flat tire while driving down the road. If you have the correct tools and have practiced changing a tire prior to it actually happening, you can be confident in your ability to change a tire.

To practice, make sure you have the proper items: a spare tire, a jack, and a lug wrench. Loosen the lugs on the wheel slightly and then use the jack to lift the car. Remove the lug nuts and then remove the tire. Place the spare on the vehicle, then place the lug nuts in the correct sequence for either a 4- or a 5-lug wheel and then tighten them by hand. Lower the vehicle, then tighten the lugs with the lug wrench.
