Changing a Tire

If not done correctly, changing a tire can be very dangerous. The vehicle may fall due to it moving or an incorrectly placed jack. Be sure you have the correct equipment and look at the owners manual for instruction.Traffic whizzing by as you change a tire is a hazard you need to avoid, so pull as far away from traffic as you can and don't risk your life to make that appointment.

If you are unfamiliar with how to change a tire, have difficulty removing lug nuts (many times those are really stuck on there), or operating a jack (most jacks are stiff, slow and hard to reach when under the vehicle) you would probubly be much better off getting professional help, especially on multi-lane highways.
