Here’s how to replace your flat tire:

  • Park your car, somewhere safe and where there is even ground level, of course. Well, don’t just get off in a hurry and forget to put it on a parking brake and turning off your engine. You might suddenly find yourself under a rolling car if you absentmindedly forget these.
  • Take out your spare tire or tires and don’t go slamming the trunk and forgetting the tire iron and jack.
  • Stoop down to loosen your wheel’s lug nuts. Do not unscrew them totally.
  • Jack up your car. Be sure it’s raised a little so you can easily remove the flat tire and put in the new one.
  • If it’s all jacked up all the way or you have enough space, you can now proceed to unscrewing the lug nuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with a new one
  • Put all the lug nuts back and make sure to tighten them
  • Lower the jack until you can remove it.
  • Don’t forget to put back the tire iron, jack and old tire in the trunk

That’s it! It ain’t this easy when a woman is changing the tires but with the proper tools and know how, a woman can do it too! Next time, if you think that your tires get easily flat or worn out, choose a better brand like a Michelin Pilot Road 3, you won’t be changing tires that often!

    I always thought it was more complicated than this, but your description makes it easy-peasy. I’ve also heard that tires with nitrogen will go flat a LOT slower so you will have more time to get somewhere for someone else to do the dirty work.
