Preventing a flat tire is often an unavoidable situation. If you do find yourself on the side of the road with a flat and are unable to call for roadside assistance, here are the basic steps that Bend Honda recommends you follow.

  • Move your vehicle away from any traffic and to a flat area.
  • Loosen up the lug nuts that are located under your hub cap. You'll need to remove the hub cap to do this.
  • Don't completely remove the lug nuts until you've jacked up the vehicle.
  • The tire will come off easily and you can mount the spare.
  • Tighten the lug nuts back on, and lower your vehicle back down.
  • Make sure you tighten the lug nuts and check them before you clean up your flat tire and drive away.
