What To Do When You've Got a Flat Tire

Experiencing a flat tire is one of the most common problems faced by drivers. Mastering the basic skill of changing a tire will be invaluable if you find yourself stranded without a service station in sight.

Move your vehicle to firm, level ground. Turn it off, engage the parking brake and begin loosening the lug nuts on the affected wheel. Lift your car according to the jack's instructions, then remove the lug nuts in a counter-clockwise pattern and pull off the tire. Put the spare on, tightening the lug nuts by hand in a clockwise pattern. Lower your vehicle to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a wrench. Find the nearest service station to replace your damaged tire.
