How to Change a Flat Tire

While nobody wants to find themselves stuck on the side of the road dealing with a flat tire, this is something that can sometimes be unavoidable. If you have a flat, it is imperative that you are prepared and you know how to change it to get back on the road. Once you are back up and running, you can bring your Audi Q7 or Audi A6 to our Audi service center at Audi of Smithtown so that we can get a new tire mounted and balanced for you. In the meantime, we would like to help our customers by making sure that you have the information you need to safely change your flat tire.

 Changing A Tire

  • Pull over to a spot on the side of the road away from traffic and with plenty of space to work around your vehicle
  • Locate your spare tire, jack, and tire iron ready to go
  • Before jacking up your Audi, loosen up the wheel lugs on the flat tire
  • Jack up your vehicle and then remove your flat to replace it with the spare tire
  • Use the jack to lower the vehicle and tighten all the wheel lugs
  • Tighten the lugs one more time before driving away

You will find Audi of Smithtown located at 578 Middle Country Road in St. James, NY. If you would like to set up an appointment in our Audi service center to have a brand-new tire mounted and balanced on your car, give us a call at (888) 884-6085.
