What Items You Should Have Available to Change a Tire

Flat tires never happen where it is convenient. Nor do tires go flat at a convenient time. There always seems to be mitigating circumstances when a tire goes flat: You are on the freeway; you are on a country gravel road; you are outside an office on a busy street; it is raining; it is freezing, or the sun is beating down.

No matter the circumstances you find yourself in when a tire goes flat, you should be prepared with a group of items. First, you need an inflated spare tire or donut. You need a jack, a lug wrench, and a small piece of 2x6 wood to stabilize the jack base. Always carry a charged flashlight.
