How to Replace a Flat Tire

If you have ever seen a person on the side of the road, bent over looking at a tire, you know that feeling of dread when your own tires start to get low or even go completely flat. However, changing a flat tire is actually quite simple with the right tools. You simply need a lug wrench, jack, and spare tire. You may also want to have wheel wedges, gloves, flashlights, and a flat tire repair kit.

The wheel wedges prevent your car from slipping once you put the jack on. The jack should slip into grooves by the tire. You want to jack up the tire so you can remove it. Using the lug wrench, you can remove the lug nuts and take off the tire. After that, simply slip on the spare tire and re-attach the lug nuts, fastening tightly.

If you need a new tire for your Honda or want tire service, stop by our Concord Honda dealership soon to get fast help.
