Changing a Flat Tire

Flat tires can happen for a variety of reasons, but being prepared can help prevent you from being stranded. Here are some DIY tips for changing a flat tire.

If possible, try to find a level, hard surface to park your vehicle. This will provide a stable surface for your jack, and help prevent your car from rolling. Once you turn off the engine, pull the lever to engage the emergency brake. If you can find a heavy object like a rock, you can place it opposite of the flat tire to help prevent rolling as well.

Once you have the new tire secured, you can safely continue your trip on the road. We invite you to follow-up your flat tire by visiting our service team here at Frank Boucher Mazda of Racine. We can get the flat replaced so that you’re ready for the road again.
