How to Prepare for a Flat Tire

 

Are you prepared for a flat tire on the road? It's something that happens very commonly to all sorts of drivers. However, many times the car owner lacks the supplies and tools to change their own tire. Learn the basics, double check your tools, then contact our service center near Selma, CA for your tire needs. Our team at Clovis Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM handles all types of service issues, including replacing and repairing tires.  


Check Your Vehicle for Supplies


It's essential to check the status of your spare tire regularly. Tires dry rot over time and can even become unusable. Along with your spare tire, make sure that your toolbox includes these standard tire changing tools:


  • Lug wrench

  • Car jack


Along with tools, it helps if you keep a few items to make your experience safer and more comfortable. Start by keeping a spare set of gloves, a raincoat, and a flashlight in your vehicle. Then add in extra items for safety. You'll want to keep:


  • Tire wedges

  • Reflective clothing

  • Safety flags or flares


Change Your Flat Tire


After you've assembled your tools, turned on your flashers, and set your parking brake, then it's time to change that flat tire. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines when changing a tire. Most follow a similar set of steps.
