Getting a Flat Tire Changed

A flat tire is one of the biggest hassles that you will face when out driving. Changing a flat is not something that you want to do unless you have to. By following a few tips, you can safely get a flat tire changed, and you can get back on the road.

When you first notice a flat, put on your hazard lights and pull safely off of the road. Pull into a parking lot if you can. Before you jack up your car, loosen the lug nuts. Take them completely off when the tire is off the ground. Remove the tire and place on the spare. Place the lug nuts on the bolts, but don't fully tighten them until the tire is resting on the ground.

Come to New Motors Volkswagen as soon as possible after a flat. If you have a temporary spare, you will need to get a new full-size tire right away.
