Changing a Tire Changing a tire The process of changing a tire can be long and tedious. However, if you have the correct tools and know the proper steps, you can reduce stress and save time.
When you discover your vehicle has a flat tire, you should first move it to a safe location. Once you are in a safe place, you then must gather the tools needed to perform the task, which include a tire iron, a jack, and most importantly a spare tire. Remove these items from your trunk. If you have passengers, for safety purposes, ask them to step out of the car.
Next, position yourself in front of the tire that you intend to change. Using the tire iron, loosen the lug nuts on the tire one at a time, beginning with the top then the bottom, left then right. This will enable the tire to come off evenly. Once the tire is loosened, position the jack. If it is a back tire, position the jack about six inches in front of the tire.
