How to Change a Tire

Flat Tire

Knowing how to change a tire is an essential skill for every Glendale Heights driver. It can save you from being stuck on the side of Chicago roads or waiting for AAA or another roadside assistance company. As always, Sunrise Chevrolet is happy to provide the car care tips you need to be a more confident driver and car owner! Below, we’ve brought you a guide on how to change a flat tire.


How to Change a Flat Tire

If your vehicle gets a flat tire while you’re driving around Carol Stream, don’t worry. All you need is a jack, lug wrench, and spare tire, which typically come with all new Chevy models. Check your owner’s manual to see where these items are located. Then, follow the steps below: 

  1. If you’re on the side of the road, try to move to a safe place and be sure to turn on your hazard lights so other Addison drivers will see you.
  2. Set your parking brake and wheel wedges under the other tires if you have them.
  3. Remove the wheel cover or hubcap from the flat tire and loosen the lug nuts.
  4. Use your car jack to raise your vehicle.
  5. Remove the lug nuts.
  6. Remove the current tire and put the spare tire on in its place.
  7. Tighten the lug nuts.
  8. Lower your car back to the ground.

How Long Does it Take To Change a Tire?

How long does it take to change a tire? It depends on your skill level, but typically it takes a half-hour or less. Remember, many new Chevy models come with complimentary free 24/7 roadside assistance! Just call the number, and you’ll be back out on Addison roads in no time.

How Often To Change Car Tires?

It depends on how often you rotate your tires and the type of tires you have on your vehicle. If you regularly rotate your tires, you should be able to get the total mileage guaranteed for your tires. You should also keep your tires properly inflated and check the tread regularly. If your tires are looking overly worn, contact the Sunrise Chevrolet service center to get a new set of tires.
