How to Replace a Flat Tire

Have you noticed your tire looks a little flat or are you getting tire pressure warnings? You don't want to ignore a tire that continuously goes flat. You should have some tools in your trunk to help you remove the tire and place a spare, or you can purchase a can of Fix-A-Flat if you are in a pinch.

Replacing a flat tire requires a lug wrench, spare tire, and a jack. All three are very important. You also want to have wheel wedges that you can place on your wheels before removing the tire to keep your car stationary. The jack will prop up your tire so that you can remove the lug nuts and take off the old tire.

After that, you simply put on the spare, attach the lug nuts and drive on to a shop. Need help with your tires? Stop by BMW Portland for specials and great service.
