How to Change a Flat Tire

Big O Tires shows you how to safely change your flat tire and get back on the road.
Getting a flat tire can be scary, but it doesn't have to be. Big-O Tires show you how you can safely and quickly change your flat and get back on the road in no time!

The first thing to do is get out your car's tool kit, which should include a car jack and a tire iron. When placing the car jack you need to make sure that you are flat ground. If it is on a hill the car may roll off the jack. After you put the jack in place you need to set your emergency brake and turn on your hazards so people driving past know that you have a disabled vehicle. The more visible you can be the better.

If your back tire is flat place the jack in front of the tire, if it is your front tire, place the jack behind the front tire. Also, when you begin to lift your vehicle be sure to keep the tire on the ground. If you don't the tire will spin while you are loosening the lug nuts. Big-O says after the lug nuts are loosened it's fine to go ahead and lift the tire completely off the ground for removal.

Once the flat tire has been taken off the spare tire can be put on. However, it's good to remember that spare tires are for temporary use and can only be driven up to certain speeds, so check your spare for that information. Tighten the lug nuts around the spare and get going to the nearest Big-O Tires who can help you replace or repair that tire.

Right now they are offering $100 off Big-O brand tires and $20 dollars off select services. For more information and tips you can visit: Bigotires.com
