Introduction
  • Well, certain things you should know while
    replacing your cars tyre. Replacing a flat tyre
    is one life skill that every person should know.
    It is not hard if you can follow a few simple
    steps, possess a set of right tools and know how
    to use them. At awkward places, flat tyres often
    occur. However, when you are on the road, you
    will need to locate a safe place to steer your
    car to the edge of the road and then replace the
    tyre. Here safe means, clear from traffic and
    possibly on a firm, level surface.

Things You Will Need
4
  • For replacing a car tyre, youll require a spare
    tyre, a robust jack and a wheel brace for
    loosening the lug nuts or a suitably sized socket
    with an extended handle.
  • It is an excellent idea to take with you a brick
    or wood chunk this can be fixed against one of
    the wheels on the opposite side of the car for
    added safety and firmness. This is particularly
    essential if the ground is not as level as you
    would want it to be.
  • In case, you are halted on the soft ground, a
    piece of hard board is a useful item for sticking
    beneath the jack before you begin lifting up the
    car.

5
LIFT UP THE CAR
6
  • Well, you are all set to start the process but
    before you begin, ensure the car is in the park,
    apply the handbrake and start your cars hazard
    lights.
  • You will find the jack at the grooves on the
    bottom of the car.
  • When you are satisfied with the firmness of the
    vehicle as well as the placement of the jack,
    begin to turn the wheel brace slowly until you
    have removed a bit of the weight from the flat
    tyre.
  • You need to ensure there is still adequate weight
    on the tyre to let you unfasten the wheel nuts
    without unintentionally spinning the wheel.

7
PULL OUT THE FLAT TYRE
8
  • It is all about using the right technique instead
    of applying brute force to loosen up unyielding
    wheel nuts.
  • As soon as you have the wheel brace on one of the
    nuts, use a quick anti-clockwise push to
    release it. Keep both your arm and back straight
    facing the wheel.
  • Prevent the brace from slipping off the nut
    loosen up each nut successively. The technique is
    to maintain the wheel brace parallel to the
    ground and allow your body weight to perform most
    of the work.
  • Once all the nuts are loosened, use the jack to
    continue lifting the car so that it is adequately
    high from the ground making it convenient to fit
    on the new wheel.
  • However, never lift up the car more than it is
    actually required. To take out the old tyre,
    remove all the nuts from the wheel and keep them
    aside safely (you should know where you have kept
    them) and cautiously lift the wheel from the
    vehicle.

FIT THE REPLACEMENT TYRE
10
  • Take your replacement wheel from its nook in the
    boot and place it up against the wheel assembly.
  • First, align the wheel holes so you can raise it
    straight onto the car in a single attempt without
    winding and turning.
  • After you have lifted and positioned the wheel,
    screw on all the lug nuts and manually fasten
    them by hand. Nonetheless, do not completely
    tighten them all at this point rather wait for
    the car to get down from the jack and be totally
    firm on the ground, then you can perform full
    tightening.
  • It is vital that you dont get any twists in your
    back when lifting up a tyre from a car or fitting
    a replacement tyre.
  • To remain safe from back injuries position your
    feet for the utmost firmness and do not lean over
    more than it is required.

11
LOWER DOWN THE CAR AND TAKE OUT THE JACK
12
  • Lower down your car and gradually remove the jack
    when the replacement tyre has completely taken
    the vehicles weight.
  • Now, it is the right time to tighten up the wheel
    nuts completely. When tightening each wheel nut,
    use your body weight instead of only using arm
    strength, and keep the wheel brace horizontal
    (i.e. level) to the ground.
  • Appropriately store your flat tyre, jack and
    wheel brace in the boot. Do not just put your old
    tyre in the recess but also fasten it in place so
    it does not slide around when you are driving.

    depend on. Eagle tyres are one of the few tyre
