How to Replace a Flat Tire

A tire can become punctured by nails, glass, or any other sharp object that goes through the rubber.

First, you will need to put the car in park, or on a flat surface if it is an automatic. Next, use your lug wrench and loosen each of the lug nuts by turning them counterclockwise.
