Tips and Tools for Changing a Flat Tire

Make sure you have the following tools in your vehicle at all times: jack, tire iron (or lug wrench), and a spare tire. Chock the wheels to prevent rolling. Then loosen lug nuts of the flat tire while the wheels are still on the ground. Place the jack carefully before raising the vehicle. Continue to loosen the lug nuts and switch out the tires, carefully placing the lug nuts on the new tire before lowering the vehicle back down.
