How to Change a Flat Tire on Your Vehicle

Follow this simple guide for changing a flat tire so you can get back on your way safely.
1. Never work on a vehicle while it is still on the road, ride that tire rim if necessary to get to the side of the road.
2. Before jacking up your vehicle, you have to loosen the lug nuts one turn with the tire lug wrench.
3. Jack the vehicle high enough so the flat tire clears the surface of the road so you can remove the lug nuts and the flat tire.
4. Place the car's spare tire on to the lug bolts, tighten the nuts until the tire is secure, but not all the way.
5. Lower the vehicle to the ground, now you are safe to tighten all those lug nuts.
6. Place your flat tire, car jack, and the tire wrench into your trunk.
