The importance of changing to your spare tire is crucial. It’s on the same level as connecting the jumper cables up to the battery when the car doesn’t start. Here are a few key tips to follow when changing out your spare so that you do it safely:

Eliminate the Possibility of a Rolling Vehicle

Use your emergency brake, and always shove something underneath a wheel to make sure your car isn’t going to roll forward or backward when you lift it up. You should try out a torque wrench that is set to the appropriate torque spec to get a good idea of how tight to go with the lug nuts. Keep in mind that if you don’t tighten the lug nuts tight enough you are at risk of the wheel coming off while driving.
