Tools For Changing A Vehicle Tire

Keep the following tire-changing essentials in your vehicle at all times:

  • Spare tire (Usually located under the floor mat in the trunk. SUVs or trucks may have the spare mounted underneath or on the back of the vehicle).
  • TIP: Check your spare regularly to ensure it's properly inflated.
  • Jack.
  • Lug wrench.
  • Flashlight with working batteries.
  • Flares and reflective triangles.
  • Gloves (Leather is ideal since it works well in a variety of weather conditions).
  • Wheel wedges.
  • Owner Manual.

The spare tire, jack, and lug wrench are vital and should all come with your vehicle. If any of these three are missing, replace them immediately.

Always keep your vehicle owner's manual in your car, as it will include details on where you can find your spare and steps for changing your tire. If you do not have your owners manual any loger try this web-site that provides free User Manual in most cars.
