At Choice Auto we want you to know the importance of changing out your flat tire to the spare. Here are a few things that will help you do it safer and more effectively:

Loosen Bolts and Raise the Vehicle Safely

You are going to want to take all the safety precautions for securing the vehicle. Apply the emergency brake, and place a wheel chock underneath one of the stationary wheels so that the vehicle won't roll away. Break the bolts loose before raising the wheel completely off the ground.

Tighten Wheels Firmly and in Sequence

Know how to tighten your lug nuts or bolts correctly beforehand after the vehicle is lowered. Keep in mind that your wheel can fall off while driving if it isn't torqued down correctly.
