Place the jack under the frame near the tire that you are going to change. Ensure that the jack is in contact with the metal portion of your car's frame. Many cars have molded plastic along the bottom.

If you don't place the jack in the right spot, it will crack the plastic when you start lifting. If you're not sure about the right place to put the jack, read your owner's manual. For most modern uni-body cars, there is a small notch or mark just behind the front wheel wells, or in front of the rear wheel wells where the jack is intended to be placed.

Raise the jack until it is supporting but not lifting the car. The jack should be firmly in place against the underside of the vehicle. Check to make sure that the jack is perpendicular to the ground 6.

Remove the hub cap and loosen the nuts by turning counterclockwise. Don't take them all the way off and just break the resistance. Having the wheel on the ground means that you're turning the nuts instead of the wheel. Use the wrench that came with your car or a standard cross wrench.

Your wrench may have different sizes of openings on different ends. A correctly-sized wrench will slip easily over the nut, but will not rattle.

It can take quite a lot of force to break your lug nuts free. If all else fails, you can use your body weight or stomp on the wrench be absolutely certain you are turning it the right way - counter clockwise.

A cross wrench will give you much more torque than a standard single-handled wrench. Pump or crank the jack to lift the tire off the ground. You need to lift it high enough to remove the flat tire and replace it with a spare. As you lift, make sure that the car is stable.

If you notice any instability, lower the jack and fix the problem before fully lifting the car. If you notice the jack lifting at an angle or leaning, lower and reposition it so that it can lift straight up.

Remove the nuts the rest of the way. Turn them counter clockwise until they are loose. Repeat with all lug nuts, then remove the nuts completely. Remove the tire. Place the flat tire under the vehicle so in the event of a jack failure the vehicle will fall on the old wheel, hopefully preventing injury.
