What you need to know about replacing a flat tire

Most drivers are going to experience a flat tire at some point in Lansdale. It's not a fun experience, but if you know how to deal with it, it can make things a lot easier. Here are some tips from Bergey's Lincoln on how to replace a flat tire.

Make sure you are somewhere safe. If the flat has occurred on a busy street, try to drive far enough to turn off. If you can't, pull as far off the road as you can and turn your emergency flashers. Make sure you have all you need before starting to change the tire, including the spare, jack and tire iron.

Place the jack in the right spot and lift your car just far enough to get the tire off the ground. Loosen and remove the lug nuts with the tire iron, remove the tire, put on the spare and retighten the nuts. Let the car back down and you are done.
