Protect Yourself with Tire Know-How

No matter the driving season, it is important to have a plan for the unexpected. One of the most common occurrences that may potentially leave you stranded is a flat or damaged tire. With a little know-how, you can easily replace the defective tire with a spare.

When you sense you have a flat tire, carefully pull into the emergency lane or other onto a flat surface such as a parking lot. After securing your vehicle, locate and bring your tire changing kit and spare to the area of the damaged tire. Carefully loosen the lug nuts before raising the car on the jack. Once the damaged tire clears the ground, remove the lug nuts and exchange the tire for the spare. Put the lug nuts back on and lower your car, tightening the lug nuts once the spare contacts the ground.
