Fast Tips for Replacing a Flat Tire

August 25th, 2020 by

You find yourself stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire. You don't have cell phone service, so you can't call your roadside assistance number for help. Even though it's been a few years since you last changed a flat tire, Planet Alfa Romeo has some fast tips that will help you recall the process of doing so.

Your vehicle needs to be parked on a flat surface before you begin.

Remove the hub cap from the tire you'll be changing. This gives you access to the lug nuts that are holding the tire onto the vehicle.

Loosen up the lug nuts a bit by turning them counterclockwise. 

Use your jack to raise up the vehicle and get your tire off the ground.

Once your vehicle is up, remove the lug nuts entirely, and remove the tire.

Replace the tire, and replace the lug nuts.

Lower the car back down and tighten the lug nuts fully.
