Don’t get caught stranded because you don’t know how to change a tire. Even if you never got the lessons from a family member, we’ve got a quick-guide on how to change a flat tire.
Having comprehensive auto insurance coverage alone is not enough, it’s important to have the right tools on hand, even if you don’t have a flat tire, or expect to get one. The unpredictable situations are the best ones to be prepared for. Here’s what you want to keep in your vehicle:
If you get a blowout or find yourself with a flat on the road, pull to the side of the road at a safe spot and turn on your hazard lights. Make sure you are visible to oncoming vehicles and that you are pulled off far enough to work on the side of the vehicle that has the flat tire without being in traffic. Read your owner's manual for instructions or call for help if you need assistance changing the tire.
