If your car has a flat, knowing how to change a car tire can help you get back on the road in a timely manner. Changing a tire on your own is quite easy, and if you’re like many other Stamford-area drivers, you may find it preferable to having to contact emergency service. This step-by-step guide will show you how to properly change a car tire. If you are uncomfortable with auto maintenance or repair work, the experts in the Garavel CJDR Service Center will be happy to assist you.
First of all, you will need to do is gather up the tools required to change a car tire. These tools include a jack, a lug wrench, and a spare or new tire. It’s also a good idea to have your owner’s manual handy. Once you have the tools together, follow these steps to change a tire on your car, truck, or SUV:
There’s no set schedule as to when car tires need to be replaced, as it depends on the quality of the tires and whether you have been keeping up to date on routine maintenance such as tire rotations. In fact, regular tire rotation can help to ensure that you get the full mileage life of your tires. Make sure to monitor the condition of your tires, and routinely check the tire pressure and tread depth. This is a great way to make sure that your vehicle is safe to drive, and will allow you to catch any issues before they become more serious.
If you replaced a flat tire with the spare, you should try to have a new tire put on as soon as you can. Spare tires are not a long-term solution and it is recommended that they are driven on for no more than 70 miles. The spare will usually have a speed limit printed on the sidewall, but most manufacturers recommend not to drive any faster than 50 mph.
