How to Change a Flat Tire

Do you know how to change a flat tire?

Apparently 3 out of 5 drivers have had a flat tire in the last five years, according to this report. The good news? Hankook found that 71% of drivers know how to change flat tire.

The bad news? That still leaves almost a third of drivers who won’t know what to do. And it’s even worse for younger drivers: two-thirds of teenagers don’t know how to change a flat.

Getting a flat tire is frustrating enough, but changing it can be stressful if you’ve never done it before. Here we’ll break it down into the basics — turns it out really isn’t that bad once you know what to expect.

Side Note: I’ve said it’s important to check your tire pressure monthly. This includes your spare tire. After all, it won’t be much use if your spare is flat too.
