Making Sure You're Ready for a Flat Tire

No matter how advance our tire technology can be, a flat tire is bound to happen. This is why replacing a flat tire is a skill worth learning. However, you don't need to be left stranded alone, waiting for a tow truck or professional service. Changing a tire may seem intimidating, but the basics are simple and easy.

To change a flat tire, the tools you'll need are: a spare tire, a car jack, a lug wrench. Having your car owner's manual can help you make sure to put the car jack in the right place. Before you start, try to get to a safe place, and then begin the process of removing the hubcap, wheel nuts, lifting the car until the wheel is entirely off the ground, and replacing the flat tire with a spare one.
