It doesn't matter where or what time of day you experience a flat tire, this guide will help get you back on the road in short order.
  • The first thing is to get the car to the shoulder and put the emergency hazards on to warn others.
  • Use the lug wrench to loosen the lug nuts one complete turn.
  • Jack the car high enough so the flat tire barely leaves the ground, now remove the lugs all the way.
  • Pull the flat tire off gently, place out of the way, put the spare tire on the tire bolts.
  • Only hand tighten the lug nuts so the tire is straight, lower the vehicle down, and now tighten the lug nuts all the way.
  • Put away your tools and the flat in the trunk.
