How to Change a Flat Tire

Every driver will occasionally experience a flat tire. Instead of feeling helpless at the side of the road, knowing how to change a flat tire is a useful skill that can have you back on the road fast than if you wait for help.

Make sure your vehicle is equipped with a jack, spare tire, lug wrench, tire tools and an emergency flare. Park your vehicle as far away from traffic as possible. Loosen the lug nuts slightly before jacking up your car and then remove the tire completely. Put the spare tire on and perform the process in reverse by putting the tire on the rim and tightening the lug nuts before lowering your car.
