Changing a flat tire is a skill that unfortunately, many people do not possess. Most people never had the privilege of being taught how, while others have simply never run into a situation where they needed to change a flat. No one wants to end up stranded in the middle of nowhere, so here are some simple steps to follow if you are ever in this situation.
In the event that you do get a flat tire, try to find a parking lot where you can safely perform the tire change. If this is not possible, pull over as far as possible. The main thing is to be safe!
Step 1: Materials
You will most likely find all of the tools you will need to change the tire in the back of your vehicle. Look for a handle or strap that will allow you to pull up the floorboards. Your tools are often located there. You will need:
• Scissor Jack
• Lug Wrench
