How to Replace a Tire: Auto Guide

Everyone has experienced that moment when a tire blows, and you're stuck on the side of the road. While it may be uncomfortable not knowing what to do, changing a tire is actually easier with the right tools. You can get back on the road in seconds just by knowing what tools to use and how to remove the old tire.

There are some things you'll need to change the tire. These include: spare tire, jack, lug wrench, flashlight, and wheel wedges. If you can't get to a tire shop right away, you can also by "fix-a-flat" kits, which can sometimes repair a flat enough to drive to a shop instead of a spare tire.

Most cars today come with all of the tools above. Before replacing your tire, you should make sure that your car is stable and wheel wedges are in place to prevent movement. You'll need to remove the lug nuts of the tire to take it off using the lug wrench. Want to get your flat fixed quickly? Stop by our service center at Loving Honda located in Lufkin, TX.
