How do You Mount a Spare Tire?

There are many forms of spare tires. The importance of knowing the type of spare tire you have available for use on your vehicle is imperative. Spare tires are not designed as a permanent replacement, and you should always consult with an auto service professional as soon as possible after changing to a spare tire on your vehicle.

No matter the type of spare tire, the method of mounting the tire is the same. To take off the lug nuts, you will need to locate and retrieve your lug wrench. Be careful when jacking up the car. Look into your owner's manual to find the strength points where you can safely use the jack to raise the car. After you have removed the flat tire, reverse the process by lining up the holes in your spare to the hub bolts. Tighten the lug nuts before you start driving.
