How to Handle a Flat Tire

Flat tires can happen to almost any driver and being prepared can help save you from being stranded with a headache. Our service team of professionals can help to get your car back on the road. For the times when you need to do it yourself, here are a few tips.

Safety should be your top priority when changing a flat tire. Once your engine is off, you should turn on the parking brake. If you have wheel chocks or can find a heavy rock to place behind tires, they can help with keeping the car in place.

When possible, try to pull over on a level surface. Dirt and grass can cause your car to sink when using the jack.
