How to Replace a Flat Tire

​If you have a lug wrench and a spare tire, you have every reason to change that flat and avoid those long wait times from roadside assistance. Learning how to change a flat tire is a rite of passage. Once you know, it can save you a pinch if your tire ever blows out, especially if you are in a location where roadside assistance cannot reach you.

Changing a tire is a pretty simple step-by-step process. All you need is an inflated spare tire, lung wrench, car jack, and possibly your owner's manual if you want to have a diagram and guidance specific to your vehicle. Using the lug wrench, you can remove the lug nuts from the hubcaps first, then you'll need a jack to lift the car to prevent any damage.
