Experiencing a flat tire is a disappointing situation, but don't let it ruin your day. In actuality, knowing how to change the tire out yourself can get you back on the road in a very short amount of time. If it's been a few years since you've had to change a flat, here is Valley Imports Mitsubishi's cheat sheet for flat tire replacement.

  • Don't start taking off your tire until you have moved your vehicle out of the way. It should be parked somewhere very flat.
  • Loosen up the lug nuts which are located underneath your hub cap. The hub cap should easily pop off so you can gain access.
  • Jack the vehicle up, and you can remove the lug nuts the rest of the way. This gives you the ability to remove your tire completely.
  • Lightly tighten up the lug nuts, and lower your vehicle back down slowly with the jack.
  • Make sure all of the lug nuts are completely tightened before moving on with your day.
