Preparation For Changing A Vehicle Tire

Once your car is in a safeand stable area, parked with the parking brake engaged, follow these steps to start changing your flat tire.

  1. Remove your spare and the tools you'll need from your vehicle.
  2. Place flares or reflective triangles behind your vehicle for safety, if you're changing your tire on the road.
  3. Place wheel wedges against the tires opposite of the flat. This will help keep your vehicle secure while it's on the jack.
  4. Remove the hubcap or wheel cover. If your lug nuts are exposed, skip this step. Use the flat end of the lug wrench to pry the cover off.
  5. Loosen (but DON'T REMOVE) the lug nuts using the lug wrench.
