Removing Lug nuts from Tire

How to Fix a Flat Tire

First, you should know what to do when you get a flat tire. While you can always call for a tow truck and have a service technician take care of it, you can choose to replace it yourself, too. To remove the flat tire and put the spare on, you’ll need a couple tools. Then, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Find a safe place to stop. You’ll need some space to work when you change a tire. Pull over to the shoulder or find a parking lot, so you can work in a safe space.
  2. Get the tire jack. Usually, the tire jack and spare tire can be found under the floor in the trunk.
  3. Put the jack in position. Check your owner’s manual to see exactly where you should put the tire jack. Usually, it’ll be a safe spot where you can get some leverage.
  4. Raise the car up. Use the tire jack to boost the car up.
  5. Remove the hubcap. To get to the lug nuts, you’ll need to remove any hubcaps or accessories covering the wheel. The hubcap can also serve as a convenient bowl to keep the lug nuts in after you unscrew them.
  6. Loosen the lug nuts. Using a lug wrench, loosen the lug nuts until you’ve unscrewed them.
  7. Take the flat tire off. Once you’ve removed the lug nuts, you’ll be able to remove the flat tire.
  8. Put the spare on. Place the spare tire on the car, tighten the lug nuts, and put the hubcap back on.

How To Fix a Flat Tire Without a Spare

So, what if you don’t have a spare tire? Some vehicles don’t include one. If you check the trunk and don’t see a spare, don’t panic­­––you have some other options.

You can get yourself a tire repair kit as a great alternative. If the tire hasn’t lost too much air, you might be able to plug the hole and stop air from leaking out.

When tires can’t be repaired, you’ll need to get the flat replaced. In that case, you’ll need to call for service.
