A lot of times we forget one of the easiest steps while changing a flat tire because of the situation. But it is very important that you secure your vehicle before you do any work on your tire. This is a serious step that you don’t want to skip.

Make sure that your turn your engine off and make sure that the emergency or parking brake is engaged before you do anything. You also need to place a wheel chock behind the opposite side of the wheel you’re changing. If you don’t have wheel chokes, a big sturdy rock will work just as fine. This will keep your car from rolling downhill depending on the type of surface level you’re on.

Always be careful while changing your tire in the case of an accident. Once you’ve changed your tired be sure to follow up with Smythe Volvo Cars to make sure that everything is running smoothing.
