how to change flat tire?
My car has 65000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The first thing you will want to do is remove the spare tire from its housing location (usually in the trunk of the vehicle). You will then want to use a lug wrench (usually provided with the vehicle) to loosen all of the lug nuts that hold the wheel on. Do this first because they will be harder to loosen once the vehicle is jacked up. Once you have the vehicle jacked up using the vehicle supplied jack or a jack of your own (in a safe jacking positon), be sure to lower it down onto a jack stand for safety. Next, you will want to remove the nuts you loosened and then pull the wheel off the hub. The wheel may require a couple of kicks to get it to break loose but the only thing that holds it on is the lug nuts so if the wheel is stuck just give it a good kick. Once the wheel is off, installation of the spare tire is reverse of removal. Be sure to tighten the lug nuts securely and preferably use a torque wrench.
