Stuck With a Flat Tire?

What to Do If You’re Stuck with a Flat Tire

Getting stuck on the road is bad enough, but it can get very dangerous at night or during bad weather conditions. Flat tires are not that difficult to change, but your safety must be a priority. Depending on where you get stuck with the flat tire, you may want to call for professional help.There are times, such as at night, during heavy rains, or during rush hour traffic, where you’re going to need to enlist the help of a professional. You should always make sure that you have a spare tire, iron, and jack, inside of your trunk. Before you get started, it is very important that you make sure your vehicle is parked on the side of the road, to avoid any potential accidents. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to change a tire on the road:

  • The First Step – The first thing you’re going to do is to remove the lug nuts from the damaged tire. Once the lug nuts are completely off, you will then want to use the jack to jack the car up.
  • The Second Step –  The next step involves putting the spare tire onto the vehicle. You need to carefully position the spare tire, so that it meets the wheel studs. You’re going to need to put a little force behind this, as you want to make sure that the new tire is on tightly. After you have the spare tire hanging on the wheel studs, screw each of the wheel lugs back on.
  • The Final Step – At this point, you’re going to carefully and slowly, lower the jack. The final step is to tighten down the lugs completely. The reason you tighten the lugs now is that the tire is on the ground and it won’t rotate around like it would if it was still hanging in the air. That’s it! You have now successfully changed your tire.
