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.
