Hi,

Before you start make sure you have the following:
- jack or any other instrument to lift the car
- tool to open the tire bolts
- spare tire
- if you ar eon the side of the road a warning triangle or any other object to make sure the oncoming traffic can see you.

step 1 - Open the tire bolts, remove all of them but two. The bolts left on the tire should be left quite loose (you should be able to open then with your hands).

step 2 - Position jack underneath car & lift car. VERY IMPORTANT to make sure the jack if proparly positioned & that the car is stable (for a car that has one wheel in the air...), so it won't fall on you. Don't stop lifting once the flat tire is in the air, remmber you have to fit in a new tire. Lift it so the new tire can fit in.

step 3 - Remove the last to bolts with your hands, while loosening secure the tire with one hand so it won't fall on you.

step 4 - Remove flat tire, while doing make sure not to damage the bolt which the tire sits on.

step 5 - Fit new tire in, screw 2 bolts by hand to secure it place.

step 6 - Screw rest of bolt by hand so secure tire in place. Make sure to "push" the tire as firm as possible to the car.

step 7 - Lower car. Do this slowly incase the tire isn't sitting properly.

step 8 - Tighten all the bolts properly, don't over tighten them, cause the next time you have to change the tire, you won't be able to open them.

step 9 - After driving a bit with the car, retighten the bolts, just to make sure nothing is loose.

This only sounds a bit complicated it's much simpler in practice then on paper.
Good luck & congretulations,
Eitan.

What would it mean to have a vibration thats almost like im gonna say a flat place on a tire


You have a warp in one of the steel belts inside your tire. Sorry but there is no fix for this except replacement. It is strongly advised that you replace "both" front or rear tires as a pair for they have been in service the same amount of time and will surly do the same thing down the road a bit. Thank you, Dana P.S. It is to your best advantage to change these tires asap for this can progress to a very dangerous situation very quickly.

2002 Honda Accord - changing tire


ex: front tire= right behind tire there is a lip of metal that sticks down and there is about a 3 to 4 inch part right behind the wheel that has been reinforced. Put your jack right there so the grove on the jack sits in it nicely. Before you jack up the car loosen the lug nuts a bit then lift the car and finish the job.

i want you to feel all 4 tires, feel for lots of flat spots. feel all the way around them. they might have flat spots on them. this will cause this noise. you neer to rotate your tires at 3,000 miles front to back. this will stop them from cupping out. thats what the tire store calls it. have your tires checked for balance when you rotate them. your tire with flat spots will make a good spare tire. switch the bad one to your spare to see if the noise gets changes

Grumbling Noise


yes it could cause the noise also having 80% tread is not good on the transfer case as it will constantly be putting stress on it. replace your fronts with matching tires and the noise should go away

Change a flat tire


The wheel is just rusted on the hub. Just take a rubber mallet and hit a few times. Or kick it a few times. This is a very common thing.
