How do you replace a flat tire?

Replacing a flat tire is not as simple an operation as it once was. Early in the history of cars, flats were considered a routine repair process. Flats happened often and replacing them was a simple jack the car up, remove and replace the flat and lower the jack and off you went. Today, the process can damage your car if you jack in the wrong spot.

When you have a flat alongside the road, the first thing is to secure your safety. Pull well off the road, set flares as warnings, and make sure your car is level before proceeding. Today’s cars are made to be lighter, and one of the places lightened is the bottom frame. Place your jack at a designated location under the car where you can raise the car without damaging it.

At Land Rover Lakeside, we demonstrate jack placement for you on request.
