Changing A Flat Tire Is Easier Than You Think

It seems like flat tires happen at the most inopportune times. Whether it occurs during a traffic jam, late at night or in an area with no cellphone reception a flat tire is no reason to panic.

Once you suspect you have a flat tire, pull off the road onto a level surface. Remove the keys from the ignition. Double check that the vehicle is in park, and that the emergency brake is engaged.

Loosen the lug nuts by turning them in a counterclockwise direction. Using the jack, lift your vehicle at least six inches off the ground. Remove the lug nuts and the flat tire. Now you can put the spare tire on the wheel bolts, tighten the lug nuts and lower the vehicle. Tighten the lug nuts again, once the vehicle is on the ground.

Safety is of the utmost importance to Mossy Alfa Romeo. Stop by our National City, CA location and our experienced service technicians will make sure your vehicle is road-ready with new tires after a flat tire.
