Question about Chevrolet Suburban 1500
Put the car in park and pull the emergency brake,This will keep the car from rolling (it will also keep the tire from turning while you take off the nuts).and you need to be on flat ground, you can put a brick or rock underneath the tire if your still concerend. open the trunk and take out spare tire, jack, and a bar that is slightly bent with a socket on the end.( on some cars there is a bracket to put the jack on, on the side of the car). On the other end of that same bar the end is angled almost to a point (it is like a chisel) this is used to take the hupcap off. insert that end under the side of the hub cap and pry the hub cap off. Now the tire nuts are exposed, take the bar with the socket and loosen the bolts while the tire is still on the ground. If you have to you can stand on the bar and jump down to break the nuts loose. Be careful, the nuts are put on with a air wrench and can be very tight. Now jack the car up until the tires JUST clear the ground and take the nuts off, slide the tire off, put spare on , put nuts on, tighten nuts, when you tighten the nuts go from one side across to the other until all the nuts are tight and then check them again., if you tighten them otherwise it could cause the tire to bind and not properly tighten. Remember righty tighty lefty loosey ( I hate that saying, but it works) If you want to put the hubcap back on (you don't have to) put the hupcap up against the tire and hit it with your hand to pop it back in place and kick it with your foot to be sure it's on properly, you don't want to lose a hubcap. Let the jack down, pu everything back in thr trunk and off you go. If you are a guy, you can do it, if you are a girl call the police for help on your cell phone 911. You could be in a dangers place and scared of strangers.
