One of the things to keep in mind about changing a flat tire is that you need to make sure it’s on securely before you go to a garage to get a new tire. The spare isn’t meant to last a long time as it’s simply a temporary fix until you can get something that will be the same size as the rest of the tires on the car. When you change the tire, only loosen the lug nuts enough to make it easier to tighten them after the spare is in place. For a complete set of instructions, search online. Image via Every Car Listed.
