How long does it take to change a tyre?

A bad tyre or a punch should not cause you to miss that special interview or meeting.Its a 10-15 mins job if you know what to do.

Tools needed to change a tyre.

Changing a tire is a relatively simple affair and most cars come with the equipment to perform the procedure as part of a basic vehicle-maintenance package. The car’s owner’s manual should also have instructions on where your tire changing equipment is located and the proper procedures.

A basic a tire changing kit typically includes:

  • A jack
  • A lug wrench with a socket on one end and a pry bar on the other/wheel spanner
  • A spare tire

Additional tools, depending on the make, model and year of your vehicle may include:

  • A wheel lock
  • Extension bars for lowering the spare tire
  • Alignment studs
  • You may need a flash light,especially when driving during the night.

Jacks come in several varieties — scissor jacks, floor jacks, bottle jacks and even bumper jacks. A scissor jack is the most common type and uses a mechanical scissor mechanism to lift the car. A bottle jack is more powerful but less compact and uses hydraulic fluid to lift the car.
