There are many Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, and Jeep® car dealerships out there, but there is only one Jake Sweeny Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM. We’ll go above and beyond to meet and exceed all expectation, and are always excited to share our vast automotive knowledge. One topic that is important to us is changing flat tires and what you should do when you end up with one.

Unfortunately, our tires aren’t indestructible. While they may seem awfully durable, taking on the rough and tumble of the road, they, like all car parts, succumb to the usual wear and tear. On the other hand, if you know what to do, you can get back rolling on the road in no time.

In every flat tire kit, you should at least have a car jack, an air compressor, an air pressure gauge, and a wrench. When your car pops a flat, pull over into a sizeable shoulder with your hazards on. With the car safely in the shoulder, lift your car using the car jack. You want to ensure that the flat tire is at least six inches off the ground to make for easy removal. Using the wrench remove the lug nuts from the tire, then remove the tire. Before installing the spare, you’ll want to check its air pressure levels. Months of non-use can have its own effects, and if your spare is low on air, use the air compressor to fill it back up. With the spare ready to go, use the wrench to secure the spare onto the axel, then lower the vehicle.

Now that you’ve installed the spare, you should hurry to an automotive technician to repair your flat; and our team at Jake Sweeney Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM are more than happy to assist.

Our team of mechanics in our Jeep service center will inspect and repair your vehicle and get you back on the road in no time. At Jake Sweeney Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, you can rest easy knowing you’ve got a team of professionals backing you.
