How To Change Your Jaguar Tires

Changing the tires on your car requires a couple tools, such as a jack, a lug wrench, your owner’s manual, and, of course, the new tire(s) you’re putting on your car. Once you have everything you need, it doesn’t take all that much to replace the tire on your vehicle.

  • If you happen to be on the side of the road, pull over and find a safe place. Turn your hazard lights on as well.
  • You should apply the parking brake and put wheel wedges under the three tires you’re not going to replace.
  • Take the wheel cover or hubcap off of the tire, then loosen the lug nuts.
  • With the use of the jack, lift your vehicle up and take the lug nuts off.
  • Take the tire to be replaced off and put the new or spare tire onto your car.
  • Tighten the lug nuts and use the jack to lower the vehicle back to the ground.

How Often To Change Car Tires
