Tools to Replace a Flat Tire

To change a flat tire, you need a few tools. Be sure to review your owner’s manual on how to fix a flat. The items you should keep in your car are a jack, lug wrench, spare tire, spray lubricate, flashlight with batteries, and tire chocks.

Lug nuts are on tight. Sometimes the lug wrench will not loosen them. Spraying a lubricant on them will help free the lug nuts. Before you jack up the car, you will want to chock it. Place the chocks in front of and behind the wheels. This will prevent the vehicle from rolling. If you do not have tire chocks, large rocks or a log can be propped around the tires also.

Make sure you have a spare tire, and you know how to release it. Each vehicle is a little different. After a flat tire, it is a good idea to have all your tires inspected. Stop by Best Volvo of Rochester, conveniently located in Rochester, NY for an inspection and to pick up a new spare tire.
