Tips for Changing to Your Spare Tire

Knowing how to replace a flat tire is important to avoid being stranded on the side of the roadway. Here at DON JACKSON MITSUBISHI, we care about the safety of our customers, so we want to inform you of a few tips that will help you in the event of an inconvenience. Here are a few good bits of information concerning flat tire replacement:

Use a Wheel Chock, Loosen Lugs Before Raising

It is crucial to place a chock, thick board or rock securely under one of the wheels to prevent the car from rolling while switching out for the spare tire. Get a good idea beforehand of how to torque the wheel once you have installed the spare so it doesn't come off while driving.

Drive Slow With Your Spare

Remember that most spare tires aren't designed for high-speed travel. Follow up with us at DON JACKSON MITSUBISHI for service after you get a flat tire in the Union City area.
