Change Your Own Flat Tire and Get Back on the Road Quickly

If you’re faced with a flat tire, it’s critical to first seek out a safe location in which to replace it. Assemble the jack, spare tire, and tire tool, and put the jack together if it’s been stored in your vehicle in separate pieces.

Place the jack under the frame of the vehicle, and crank it to lift the vehicle off the ground. Remove the hubcap if necessary and use the tire tool to loosen and remove the lug nuts. Switch out the flat tire with the spare, replace the lug nuts and hubcap and lower the jack to return the vehicle to the ground.

Once you’ve replaced the tire, a visit to a professional repair shop is definitely in order. The crew at All American Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Midland in Midland, TX is standing by to handle any automotive repair or maintenance matter, so be sure to bring your vehicle by for a check-up if you’ve recently had to change a flat tire.
