Answers from the Automotive Experts

Brandy Schaffels, Editor at, Inc. It sounds to me that you might be asking how to change a tire. Here is an instructional video: Hope this helps!

Julie Scroggins, Vice President, CFO at Waukegan Tire and Supply Company Inc. Hi Anthony, If you're only changing one rim you will need to get the vehicle on level ground and follow the jacking instructions in your owner's manual. If you are changing all four rims I would recommend going to a local independent tire dealer for the swap. Jacking up all four corners at home is a long and hard job and you would need multiple jacks and stands. JKS
