Having A Flat Tire Is No Reason to Panic

All drivers at some point will have to deal with changing a flat tire. If you haven't been through that before then it can be somewhat of an intimidating task. The good news is that if you know what to do then it is actually pretty simple. Follow these steps to get your flat tire changed:

  • Break the lug nuts loose with the lug wrench
  • Raise the vehicle up off of the ground with the jack
  • Remove the lug nuts completely
  • Slide the flat tire off
  • Slide the spare tire on
  • Put the lug nuts back on, tightening as much as you can
  • Lower the vehicle back to the ground
  • Torque the lug nuts back down

As you can probably see by now, this is not that hard of a task. If you have any more questions about changing a tire then ask one of the service experts here at Carbone Ford of Bennington in Bennington, VT.
