To change a flat tire, you will need the following items: a spare tire, a jack, a lug wrench, and your vehicle's owner's manual. Here are the basic steps to change a flat tire:

  1. Find a safe location to pull over and turn on your hazard lights.
  2. Loosen the lug nuts on the flat tire with the lug wrench.
  3. Place the jack under the vehicle in the specified lifting point and raise the vehicle until the flat tire is off the ground.
  4. Unscrew the lug nuts completely and remove the flat tire.
  5. Install the spare tire onto the wheel studs and hand-tighten the lug nuts.
  6. Lower the vehicle with the jack and tighten the lug nuts in a crisscross pattern.
  7. Lower the vehicle completely and double-check the lug nuts to ensure they are tight.
  8. Pack up your tools and flat tire, and drive to a repair shop to have the flat tire repaired or replaced.

Always refer to your vehicle's owner's manual for specific instructions on changing a flat tire for your particular vehicle.
