Fixing a Flat Tire: What Everyone Should Know

When you have a flat tire, the last thing you want is to be stuck. If you are unable to change a tire currently, that's not a problem. It's an easy step-by-step process that will get you back on the road quickly. However, you do want to stock up on some items to prepare for a future flat tire.

These are some of the items that you will need:
  • Car jack
  • Lug wrench
  • Inflated spare tire
  • Tire wedges/wooden wedges
The first thing that you do with any flat tire situation is put the car in park and turn off the engine. The tire wedges should be placed to prevent the car from rolling. Once you have secured the vehicle, take the lug nuts off the hubcap with the lug wrench and set aside. You can now attach the jack and pump up the car. Pull the tire off and place the spare tire on.

If you need more help, you can reach out to the folks at Ted's Auto Sales located in St. Petersburg for a great rate on tire changes.
