If you’ve got a flat tire, or if you’ve noticed that the tread has worn down too far and want to replace the tires on your Honda, knowing how to change a tire is something all Asheville-area drivers should know how to do. Learn how to change a car tire in this step-by-step guide from the service team at Apple Tree Honda.

 

 

Changing Your Honda Tires

In order to change a tire on your Honda, you’ll need to make sure that you have a jack, lug wrench, spare tire or new tire(s), and your owner’s manual. Replacing a tire on your car, truck, or SUV is a fairly simple and straightforward process, just follow these steps:

  1. If you’re on the side of the road near Hendersonville, move to a safe place and turn on your hazard lights.
  2. Apply the parking brake and place wheel wedges under the other tires.
  3. Remove the wheel cover or hubcap from the tire, then loosen the lug nuts.
  4. Use the jack to raise your vehicle and remove the lug nuts.
  5. Remove the current tire and mount the new or spare tire.
  6. Tighten the lug nuts, then lower your vehicle back to the ground.

How Often Should You Change Car Tires?

Determining how often you should change your car tires depends on how often you have your tires rotated and how well your tires are made. With regular tire rotation you should enjoy the full mileage life that the tire is rated for. Of course, you should always make a point of regularly checking the tire pressure and tread depth to ensure that your tires are safe to drive on. It’s also recommended that you have your tires rotated whenever you have your Honda is due for its next scheduled oil change.

How Many Miles Can You Go on a Spare Tire?

If you’ve had a flat and replaced it with the spare tire, it’s important to get a new tire put on as soon as you can. Spare tires are a temporary solution and are only safe to drive on for less than 50 miles or so. If you have put the spare tire on your car, make sure to avoid driving at high speeds. The spare will usually have the specific speed limit printed on the sidewall, but most recommend that you don’t drive over 50 mph.
