How to Change a Flat Tire

How to Change a Flat TireIntroduction:

There are two different ways that you can use to approach changing the tires on your car. One way is to take your car to a professional automotive repair shop and spend a great amount of money for their services. Another way is to learn how to do it yourself by following these quick easy to do steps that I am about to show you right now.


Step one — All vehicles today should be well equipped with a personal car jack and a personal tire iron hidden some where in the car. Reading your car manual usually located in the glove box should show you where to locate these items.

Step two — After you have found your personal car jack and tire iron you are now ready to do this next step. There is usually a specific spot under your car where your personal car jack is suppose to go. You should make sure that you find the spot where your flat tire is located.

Step three — Always loosen the lug nuts on the tire you are about to change first before you start jacking up your car. You would turn your tire iron counter clockwise just enough to loosen the lug nuts so that the lug nuts would come off easier when you jack the car up.

Step four — You can now start jacking your car up just enough to where the tire is about one inch off of the ground.

Step five — Start taking off every lug nut that you started to loosen earlier. You can also remove the flat tire from the car and put on your spare tire all with in this same step.

Step six — Put all your lug nuts back on and turn your tire iron clock wise just enough to make sure your tire is on tightly. Start jacking your car back down until all of the weight of car is on the tire and not your jack.

Step seven — Grab your personal tire iron again and with all your might start to fully tighten each one of the lug nuts on your tire.
