Replacing Your Flat Tire Efficiently

It's important to us here at Acura of Reno that you know how to replace your wheel when you get a flat tire. There are a couple of key procedures for staying safe and being prepared for a tire blow out.

Be Prepared for Your Tire Swap

Be prepared with the appropriate jack and socket to take the wheels off. Some wheelsets come with a locking lug nut that requires a different key to loosen. Make sure you perform the following functions for a successful tire swap:
  • Break the lug nuts loose before you raise the wheel off the ground
  • Install a wheel chock or something solid to stop the car from rolling
  • Have a torque wrench on hand/the knowledge of how to torque the bolts properly after lowering the vehicle
