Sometimes you’re driving along and everything’s fine, your car’s running great, and you have no worries. Other times you’ll realize that something’s wrong and you need to check it out. One of the most common examples of this is finding a flat tire. A flat tire isn’t safe to drive on and must be switched out for a new tire or at least a temporary spare until you can get a new tire. Here at Rick’s Auto Repair & Towing, we can change your flat tire for you. Here’s a bit more on how to change a flat tire Austin as well as how we can help and why you might want to use us.
How To Do It
First, you’ll want to find a safe place to pull over to the side of the road – not a place where you’re hard to see, and not on a hill where it’ll be hard to fix the flat. Then turn on your hazards so that everyone else knows there’s something wrong with your vehicle and that they should go around you. This would be the perfect time to call us at Rick’s Auto Repair & Towing Austin because we can come and quickly resolve the situation for you. Here’s what we’ll do. We’ll remove the hubcap and loosen the lug nuts on the offending tire. Then we’ll jack up the car securely, remove the lug nuts, and pull the flat tire off. We’ll immediately replace it with either a spare or a new tire for you, replace the lug nuts, and then lower the car back down. Once the car is on the ground, we’ll tighten the lug nuts completely so that you can drive without risk of them falling off and losing your tire completely.
