Roadside Emergency: Changing a Flat

The moment you experience the roadside emergency of getting a flat tire, you need to be confident that you can change it. You likely have all of the equipment in your vehicle and can be back on the road in Grand Rapids in just minutes.

You will need to collect some supplies to take care of your flat tire: emergency warning device, your manual, a car jack, a lug wrench, and the spare tire. Loosen the lug nuts with the wrench and then raise the vehicle. From there, use the wrench to remove the lug nuts and tire early and take off the flat tire. You can then put the spare tire in the place and hand tighten the lug nuts. Once you lower the vehicle, you can tighten the lug nuts the rest of the way.

Changing a tire doesn’t have to be hard work. At SHARPE, we can also see to it that you get a new tire.
