Replacing Your Flat Tire Like a Pro

Being capable of replacing a flat tire is crucial knowledge to avoid being stranded on the side of the road. When your tire goes flat there are some important steps you need to take to get your car back on the road again. Here are a few:

Locate Your Spare Tire and Jack

The faster you can get the spare out and ready to go the faster you will be driving again. Always inflate your spare with air now and then to ensure that it is functional.

Jack Vehicle With Care

Stop the vehicle from rolling with a rock or wheel chock. Loosen each lug nut before lifting the wheel completely off the ground. When installing the lug nuts again make sure that you torque them in a star pattern and with sufficient enough force that they aren't going to come off.
