What Do You Need to Change a Tire?

Believe it or not, you don't have to be superman to change a tire on your car or truck. All you need are your tire tool kit, your spare tire, and a little know-how.

Once you have moved your vehicle to a safe location, use the lug wrench to loosen the lugs that are holding the old tire in place, but don't remove them yet! Next, use the jack to raise the side of the car that has the flat. When the tires are no longer touching the road, finish removing the lugs and the flat tire. Once you have put the new tire or donut in place, lower the car and tighten the lug nuts one more time to make sure the tire is secure.
