Changing a tyre the safe way
The Jamaica Automobile Association (JAA) has been assisting Automotives and Auto readers with helpful tips on everyday tasks related to their vehicles. Today, the tyre-changing process is broken down into stages to ensure that it is done safely.
Changing a tyre on your motor vehicle may seem like one of the easiest tasks to complete as part of vehicle maintenance; however, knowing how to do it correctly (especially in challenging surroundings) is invaluable.
A tyre can fail at the most inconvenient time. However, having the right tools - such as an inflated spare tyre, a working jack and a wrench tool to loosen the lugs on the tyres - is critical.
Tremaine Grant, response technician with the Jamaica Automobile Association, demonstrates the proper technique in order to correctly change your tyre.
