How To Change a Flat Tire?

Are you stuck with a flat tire in Keyport? We understand how frustrating it can be. That’s why we’ve put together a guide which you can follow to swiftly change your flat and get back on the road. 

3 Must-Follow Rules Before You Change The Car’s Tires

  • Park the car in a secure place when you realize the tire has burst. 
  • Turn on your hazard lights to let other drivers know to stay away. 
  • Apply the parking & emergency brakes

13 Steps To Changing A Flat Tire

  1. Put the wheel wedges in place. 
  2. Operate the flat side of your lug wrench to remove the wheel trim off the wheel. 
  3. Use the lug wrench to remove the lug nuts off the tire. 
  4. Place a block of wood on the ground underneath the car and place the jack on it. The jack should be placed alongside the burst tire. 
  5. Next, raise the car by handling the jack. Then place jack stands underneath the car to support its weight. 
  6. Now unscrew the lug nuts either by hand or with the wrench and safely place them in a box. 
  7. Grip the treads of the tire and gently lift the tire off the hub. Place it on the ground next to you. 
  8. Take the spare tire and mount it on the wheel hub. 
  9. Place the lug nuts on the bolts and start tightening them by hand or with the help of the wrench. 
  10. Remove the jack stands from underneath the car and lower the jack until the car’s wheels touch the ground again. Remove the jack and the wooden block from under the car. 
  11. Attach the wheel trim again. If you’re incapable to position it back on, don’t worry. This accessory is only just for show and isn’t absolutely required, so you can have it attached at a garage later. 
  12. Pack up all your equipment and put it back into the car. Place your deflated tire in the cargo space too. 
  13. Finally, take your car to a Sansone JR Service Department.
