The Right Way to Safely Change a Flat Tire

Memorize this flat tire guide so you can get back on the road in less time after a tire failure.?
  1. If the vehicle is not already off the road, ride the rim a few feet to get out of the way of any oncoming traffic.
  2. Loosen the lugs on that flat tire one turn before jacking the vehicle up.
  3. Now that the vehicle is on the jack and the tire off the ground, it is safe to take the lug nuts off.
  4. Carefully take the flat tire off the car, place the spare in its place.
  5. Tighten all the lug nuts so the tire is secure, don't tighten all the way.
  6. Lower the vehicle down to the ground, tighten the lugs all the way, then be sure to put your tools and flat tire back into the vehicle.
Stop by Braddock Motors to have that flat tire replaced and the rest of the tire treads inspected.
