Replacing a Flat Tire Safely and Quickly

Few things can be as frustrating as being stranded some place away from home with a flat tire. At Kia on the Boulevard, we want you to be confident of what to do in that situation. Changing a tire or replacing a flat tire isn’t as difficult as it sounds. The first thing is to pull completely off the road so you’re not in the way of traffic. Put on the emergency brake. Retrieve the tire, jack and necessary tools from the trunk, and slightly loosen the lug nuts on the tire.

Jack up the car according to directions in the owner’s manual. Remove the lug nuts and put them where you won’t lose them. Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire. Replace lug nuts, bring the car back to the ground and tighten lug nuts fully. Recheck the lug nuts after driving a few miles.

Stop at our dealership in Philadelphia and allow us to check your tires or service your vehicle.
