Besides the engine, the tires are probably the most critical part of your vehicle. Without them, you are not going anywhere. This is why it can be frustrating when you end up with a flat or damaged tire. This always seems to happen at the most inopportune of times, so it is important to know what to do.

The first thing that you need to do is find the safest place possible to park. This always depends on where you are, of course, but you want to find a place that is as far off the road as possible. You also want to stay away from hills if at all possible.

Before you start to even think about changing the tire, make sure your vehicle is secure. The engine should be turned off and the emergency brake engaged. It is important to properly maintain your tires, so stop by CMA's Volvo Cars of Charlottesville if you need any assistance.
