My Aunt teaches me to change a tire

This situation came up for me Saturday 27th of May. My aunt got into her parking lot and realized her car tire was flat. Why was this tire flat? She drove over a nail somehow. 

How to change a tire? 

  1. Find a safe flat location, thankfully we were in my aunt’s garage
  2. Turn on your hazard lights 
  3. Apply parking brake 
  4. Apply wheel wedges 
  5. Remove wheel hub cap and wheel covers. 
  6. Loosen the lug nuts, Lefty loosey! 
  7. Place jack under the vehicle, in our case, it was a Toyota 
  8. Unscrew lug nuts 
  9. remove the flat tire 
  10. Mount on the spare tire with lug nut bolts 
  11. Tighten the lug nuts
  12. Lower the vehicle and tighten again 
  13. Lower the vehicle completely
  14. Replace hubcap 
  15. Store all of your equipment 
  16. Check pressure in your tire 
  17. Take flat tire to Dignity auto repairs! 

For your flat tire needs go to Dignity Repairs.
