Five Steps to Change a Flat Tire
Step 1: If you are on the road, turn on your hazard lights and park in a place that gives you enough room to maneuver while changing the tire. Use wheel wedges to keep your tires in place and ensure that the parking brake is engaged.
Step 2: Remove the wheel cover or the hub cap and loosen the lug nuts using your wrench.
Step 3: Use the jack to raise the vehicle off the ground.
Step 4: Use the lug wrench to remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
Step 5: Tighten the lug nuts diagonally and then use the jack to lower the vehicle.
How often should I change my Tire?
Tires usually last for six to ten years, but the longevity of their life depends on how you drive your vehicle and the terrain. Keep a lookout for the tread depth of your car and regularly check the tire for cracks or bulges.
