Picture of How to Change a Car Tire
You’ve just walked out of the DMV smiling ear to ear. As you approach your vehicle you receive a big congratulations from your parent. They toss you the keys and say take your first spin as a licensed driver. Sound familiar to you? Every year in the U.S. nearly 4 million new drivers are licensed2 in the U.S. Are you really prepared for the road though? You studied your state issued learning packet, learned the laws of the road, and even passed parallel parking. Obviously there is nothing you can’t handle.

Well let me ask you this, how do you change a flat tire? Every year flat tires and tire blowouts account for between 10-15% of automobile breakdowns in the U.S3. For those of you are sitting there thinking still no big deal, I have AAA or one of numerous other roadside assistant services, you are still wrong. What if you can’t contact your roadside assistant; it's not unfeasible  considering the possibility of no cell phone service, dead cell phone battery, roadside is busy so your call won’t go through, you don’t know where you are or what if roadside assistance can’t make it to your location? What if you are simply in a hurry and roadside assistance can’t be there in a timely manner because your automobile breakdown isn’t considered “critical”, so you keep getting moved down the list as more pressing customers are placed ahead of you.

Now imagine knowing you could fix this very predicament. No waiting for roadside assistance, if they can even come, and get the task done much faster. Most people can unsafely muddle their way through changing a flat tire, but when you are involving a multi-ton chunk of metal safety is key. Our goal is to teach you that through knowledge, careful preparation, and having a plan changing an automobile tire is safe, fast and easy.
