1. Move the vehicle while on the rim if needed to get safely out of the way of traffic.
2. Loosen the lugs on the flat tire one turn before jacking up the vehicle.
3. Jack the vehicle high enough so the flat tire no longer is touching the road.
4. Remove all of the lugs, then the flat tire, and set them aside.
5. Place the spare tire onto the tire bolts and secure by hand-tightening the lugs.
6. Tighten with the wrench until the tire is straight, lower vehicle down, tighten the lugs all the way.
