To change a flat tire, you need a spare tire, car jack, and a wrench. Park on a flat surface, loosen lug nuts, use the jack to lift the car, remove the flat tire, replace it with the spare, lower the car, and tighten the lug nuts.

Changing a flat tire isn’t incredibly difficult, but the right equipment and following the correct procedure can make the process easier and safer. You need to make sure you have a spare tire, car jack, and a wrench or wrench to properly remove the tire and replace it with a spare. It’s usually best to replace a tire on pavement, and you want to make sure the area is flat. You can then use the jack to raise the vehicle, remove the flat tire, replace it with a new one, and lower the car before continuing.

To replace a flat tire, you need to make sure you have the right equipment, which you should always have in your vehicle. Three things are essential to the process, and without any of them you may find yourself calling a tow truck. You need a spare tire, either a compact spare or a full-size spare, a jack, and a lug or lug wrench. If you need to replace a flat tire, the first thing you should do is pull over to the side of the road and make sure you are not blocking traffic.

You should also be sure to come to a complete stop on a flat, paved area, park your vehicle, and apply the emergency brake. Sloping terrain can cause vehicle damage or injury when the vehicle leaves the jack. Dirt is usually less effective at lifting a car than pavement. You can start by using the tire iron to loosen the lug nuts on your flat tire, but not remove them completely. This can be more difficult than it sounds, as it is often tightened with powered equipment, so you will likely have to put in some real effort to loosen them.

Once you have loosened the lug nuts, you can place the jack under the proper location for your vehicle. It’s also wise to use a large, heavy object, such as a brick, to block the tire opposite the one you’re replacing, to prevent any chance of your vehicle rolling. You can determine the proper location for a jack in your vehicle by consulting your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Use the jack to raise your vehicle until the flat tire clears the ground.

You can then completely remove the lug nuts, which you want to have on hand, and pull out the flat tire. The spare tire can be attached to your vehicle by lining up the holes in the tire with the studs on the wheel. You should then put the lug nuts on the spare tire, but do not overtighten them. Use the jack to lower your vehicle to the ground, and then tighten the lug nuts as much as you can. If you’re using a compact spare then it may be a bit smaller than the others and you probably have a speed limit to drive it; full size spares do not have that limitation and can be used just like any other tire.
