ChangeTire

Page history last edited by PBworks 15 years, 2 months ago

It is hard to believe that in today’s society there are still people who don’t know how to change a tire on their car. With the number of cars on the road today and drivers education courses taught in high schools across the country I cant understand how there are people who are eligible to drive that still don’t know how to change a tire. I will explain how to change a tire to all of you who don’t know already.

 

• Initially when you realize that the tire is flat you want to pull the car to the side of the road on a level stretch of ground if possible.

• Put the car in park and engage the parking break to help keep the car from moving.

• Find your car jack which might be located in the tire well of the trunk of your car. At this time you can also remove your spare tire and your tire iron.

• Locate the spot underneath your car where the jack is supposed to be placed. There should be a spot located near each wheel and it should be marked in someway.

• Once the jack is in place proceed to jack up the car.

• With the car jacked up you will now need to remove the damaged tire. If your tire has a cover over its lug nuts you will need to pry this off to access the nuts.

• Use your tire iron to loosen the lug nuts. Do not move around the nuts in a circle. Continually move across the circle of nuts until you have removed all the nuts.

• With all the lug nuts removed proceed to take off the damaged tire.

• Put on the spare tire

• Put the lug nuts back on in the same fashion as you removed them.

• Lower the car.

• Place all your tools back inside the car.

• Disengage the parking break and drive your car to a service station.
