Knowing how to fix car problems that might come up, like flat tires, is a must for every driver.

No one wants a flat tire. It’s inconvenient, costs you money, and could result in vehicle damage. Knowing how to safely change a tire can make getting a flat slightly less of a hassle though. It’s not that hard, and your Acura car actually provides the equipment you need.

When you get a flat you need to make getting somewhere safe your first priority. Then you need to find your spare tire, jack, and tire iron in the trunk. Before you jack up the car, make sure you loosen the lugs on the wheel to make life easier. Once the car is jacked up, remove the tire by unscrewing the lug nuts all the way. Install the spare tire and then lower your car. Make sure the lugs on your wheel are tightened completely.
