Dealing With a Flat Tire

Flats happens to everyone. If you have everything to put a spare on your car, here are the steps to take:

  • Only attempt to place the spare if you have safe conditions like a flat, hard or paved surface. If your car is on a hill, it could roll. Call for help.
  • Ensure the engine is off and the emergency or park brake is on.
  • You'll need a jack, spare tire, and tools for the job.
  • Loosen the lug nuts before using the jack.
  • Use the jack to lift the car.
  • Remove the lug nuts and wheel.
  • Put on the spare. Secure the wheel and lug nuts.
  • Lower the car.

Stay safe on the road. Call for help if you need it. Contact our service department at Piazza Mazda of West Chester to schedule routine tire maintenance.
