This guide will give you all the information you need for changing a flat tire safely.

Before you do anything with a flat tire, move the car off the road, ride the rim if needed for a few feet.

Once in a safe area off the road, use the tire lug wrench and loosen the lug nuts only one or two turns. Then it is safe to jack the car into the air high enough so the tire is no longer in touch with the road.

Now it is safe to remove all those lug nuts from the flat tire, then place the tire off to the side.

Put the spare tire on to the lug bolts and secure with the lug nuts. Only tighten the nuts after the vehicle is lowered and the tire is in contact with the road. Pick up all your tools and place them with the flat tire in the trunk.

Keep up with your scheduled tire rotations when you see us at George Gee Kia Liberty Lake.
