How Do You Change a Jaguar Car Tire?

If you want to change your Jaguar car tires at home in Saddle River or Ridgewood, there are a few tools you’ll need, listed here:

  • A jack
  • A lug wrench
  • Your spare tire or new tires
  • Your owner’s manual

If your Jaguar needs a new tire, just follow this quick process to get you driving again in no time:

  • Move somewhere safe if you’re on the side of the road, then turn your hazard lights on.
  • Put the parking brake on and put the wheel wedges under the tires you aren’t changing.
  • Remove the hubcap from the tire and loosen the lug nuts.
  • Raise the vehicle with the jack and take the lug nuts off.
  • Remove the original tire and put the new or spare tire in its place.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, then put the vehicle back on the ground.
  • Finish tightening the lug nuts once the vehicle is safely stable on all four tires.

If you put on a spare tire, make sure to get a new tire as soon as possible! Spares aren’t meant to last for more than 50 miles, and you shouldn’t go more than 50 mph when one is on your vehicle.

Here’s How Often To Change Your Car Tires

You can extend the life of your tires and by regularly rotating your tires. You should also be checking your tire pressure and tread depth regularly. Most tires will continue to work just fine for around six years, but if you’ve got too much wear on your treads or visible signs of warping or cracking, it’s time for new tires. You can schedule a tire rotation with Jaguar Paramus today, or have one of our service experts take a closer look.
