If you’re looking for a new Mazda dealer that makes customer satisfaction its main priority; Freeman Mazda is an ideal pick. At Freeman Mazda we pride ourselves in the satisfaction of our customers, providing them with the tools and resources necessary to fulfill their automotive needs. For us, knowledge is important, and no piece of information is as crucial as changing a flat tire.

Your tires are the foundation of your vehicle, and while they may seem indestructible, they aren’t. Over time, regular wear and tear can weaken their durability, and eventually, they pop. While you can avoid flat tires by keeping up on your tire maintenance, sometimes a flat tire can come up completely unexpected.

If you find yourself with a flat tire, it is important that you avoid pulling off into narrow shoulders, so as to reduce the risk of an accident. Before a flat even happens, it is worthwhile to pack your car with the necessary equipment such as a car jack, an air-pressure gauge, and a wrench. When you pull off and lift your vehicle, ensure that the wheel is six inches off the ground before removing the lug nuts. Using the wrench remove the wheel and set up your spare for installation. Before securing your spare, it is worthwhile to check its air pressure levels, as riding a low-pressure spare can be almost just as bad as riding on a flat. Once you’ve checked your spare, and secured it to your axel, lower the vehicle and seek out the assistance of maintenance professional to fix-up your flat tire.

At Freeman Mazda, the team of auto technicians in our Mazda service center can ensure that your car is ready to take on the open road. We’ll answer any questions you may have and get you installed with a new set of wheels in no time.
