Remove the Hub Cap
Remove the Lug Nuts
Use the Jack
Take Off the Tire and Mount the Spare
Next, you will need to remove the blown tire and put the spare on. You can then tighten the spare with the lug nuts using the lug wrench that you have. Be sure that the spare tire has enough air in it and lower the jack. Once the vehicle is completely on the ground, you can remove the jack and the wheel wedges. Get back into your car when it is safe and take off the emergency brake.
Driving on a spare tire is not meant to be permanent. Many people wonder how long do spare tires last or how fast can you drive on a spare tire. For most spares, you will only be able to drive 50MPH or slower and for no more than 70 miles. Be sure to get your tire properly fixed when you are able to get to a mechanic shop.
