HOW TO CHANGE A FLAT TIRE
If you have a flat
tire or are experiencing difficulty moving your vehicle to the nearest service
center, how do you change a flat tire?
There are many
reasons why a driver might need to change a flat tire, and you should be aware
of these reasons before you waste gas by driving erratically. One reason that
makes people take action and change their flat tire is when the tire air
pressure only lasts a few days.
Will you know what to
do if you had a flat tire in the midst of nowhere with no cell phone service
and no way to contact roadside assistance? Understanding how to change a flat
tire is a skill that has fallen out of favor, but it should be learned.
Spend a couple of minutes learning how to change a tire by following these seven simple steps. Check that you have the necessary equipment and that your car is not blocking traffic. When you have them, set up reflector cones, and ensure you change or fix your flat tire as soon as possible. That's where Tire Warehouse comes in.
To fix a flat tire, you'll need the following tools. Always keep these tools in the trunk of your car:
Follow the following
steps to change flat tires
If your wheels are made of steel, remove the wheel cover
It is equivalent to
removing the lid from a paint can when removing your wheel cover. Pry the wheel
off using a flathead screwdriver till it comes off.
Remove your spare tire, lock your truck, and
carefully release the lug nuts
To stop your car from
moving, use stones, pebbles, or wood to block the wheels on the other side of
the flat tire. Release the lug nuts with your lug wrench, but don't remove
them. You will need to locate the lug key that fits your wheel fasteners if you
have replacement wheels.
Jack up your car
Insert the handle and
pump up and down if you have a hydraulic jack. Insert the wrench or rod and
crank it up with a scissor jack.
Take off your flat tire.
With your hand,
remove the remaining lug nuts. Move the flat tire towards your body with your
hands on every side of it. You should be able to slide your flat along the lug
bolts until it becomes completely free. Roll the tire to the back of the car.
Replace the lug nuts after lifting your spare onto
the lug bolts
Lift the reserve into
place on the lug bolts with caution. Lock the lug nuts in position with your
Tighten the lug nuts as you lower your vehicle
To ultimately return
your truck to the ground, turn your jack in the opposite way. Use your lug
wrench to lock your lug nuts as much as possible.
Return your wheel cover to its original position
To avoid denting your wheel cover or hub cap, use your hands rather than
a wrench. With your palm, press the lid into position.
