Changing a flat tire in optimal weather conditions is actually something that doesn't take very long. If you would rather try to change your flat yourself instead of waiting for roadside assistance, here are Philpott Pre-Owned Super Center's tips to get this done quickly.

Always park your vehicle safely away from traffic on the side of the road and on a flat surface.

Take the hub cap off completely, storing it somewhere safe for the time being.

Loosen, but don't remove, the lug nuts on the flat tire.

Raise up the vehicle with a jack to remove the tire. The jack should be solidly placed underneath the vehicle.

Place your spare tire on the vehicle, and loosely place the lug nuts back on.

Lower the vehicle and tighten the lug nuts before you clean up and start your vehicle to leave.
