No matter what you’re driving, whether it be a new Volvo or certified pre-owned, it’s likely that at some point you’ll experience a flat tire. Flat tires are inherently frustrating and can be caused by anything from roadside obstacles to simple wear and tear. Fortunately, we’re here to show you some quick tips on changing out a flat.

First things first, you’re going to want to raise your car to the appropriate height. Surprisingly enough, plenty of drivers are unaware that you should lift your tire so that it is at least six inches off the ground. At this height removing your tire should be reasonably easy. Another great piece of advice is to check the pressure of your spare before you’ve installed it. Your spare tire can spring a leak just like any other tire, being conscious of the health of your spare tire before driving on it can save you the trouble of having to dial for roadside assistance. Lastly, it is crucial that you have a skilled technician look at your flat tire once you’ve installed your spare; and our maintenance team at Fields Volvo Northfield are tire experts.

When you visit Fields Volvo of Northfield to fix a flat tire, you can expect to find top-notch tire maintenance from the auto technicians in our Volvo service center. We’ll walk you through every step of the servicing process and help you get back on the road again in no time.
