Tips for Changing a Flat Tire

Being prepared for a flat tire can get you back on the road in case of a roadside emergency. Here are some tips from us here at Volvo Cars of Evansville for changing a flat tire.

Locate the best place to secure the jack. Your owner’s manual can help you find the right place to position the jack. Some vehicles will even have a special slot to make it easier. Another great tip is to loosen the lug nuts slightly before you raise the vehicle. This can make it easier to remove the tire once you have it up in the air. If the lug nuts are stuck, you can use a can of penetrating oil to loosen them for easier removal.

After you have the new tire secure, you can lower the car and be on your way. The next time you have a flat tire, stop in and see us for a follow-up to make sure that your car is ready for the road.
