Warning! If you get a flat tire while driving pull far off the road or into a parking lot so that you are in a safe location to properly change the tire.
Step 1: Materials Needed
·- -Spare Tire
-Pair of gloves (optional)
Step 2: Finding the Lug Nuts
Note: Not all tires have hub caps. If your tire does not then the lug nuts should already be exposed.
Step 3: Loosening the Lug Nuts
Step 4: Jacking Up the Car
Warning! Once the car is jacked up be sure to not position yourself under the car. The jack may slip or collapse trapping you underneath the car. Also be sure not to lean on the car due to the same danger.
Step 5: Taking the Tire Off
Tip: If you have a hub cap place the lug nuts in the hub cap so that you do not loose any of them!
Take the tire off and place the spare tire on.
Step 6: Putting Lug Nuts Back On
Step 7: Letting the Car Down
Warning! Do not just release the jack and allow the tire to coe crashing down on the pavement. Slowly let the tire absorb the weight of the car so that it does not bend the rim and so the tire does not get damaged.
Step 8: Putting the Hub Cap Back On
- On the hub cap there is will be a groove in it where the stem of the tire goes. The stem is where you put air into the tire. Line up the stem with the groove and with the palm of your hand hit the hub cap around the edge to get the hub cap back on the tire.
