Are you familiar with the right way to change a tire for your Wailea jeep rental?


Knowing how to change a tire in case something happens to your vehicle rental is important. Although you can always call for help, just imagine a scenario where you're in the middle of nowhere on the island of Maui and your phone doesn't work. Or, you're close to your destination... but your phone is out of battery.

 

Just in case something unexpected should happen, here's how to take care of changing a tire for your Wailea jeep rental and be off on your way exploring the island in no time.

What do you need to change a tire for your Wailea jeep rental?

Getting a flat tire isn't fun. But it happens. And frankly, it isn't that difficult to change it.

 

First of all, it's important that you have the necessary tools on you in case you hit a nasty bump in the road. In order to change your tire, you'll need a jack, a wrench and of course, a spare wheel.

 

Aside from the must-have items, it won't hurt to have a flashlight handy, in case it's dark, a raincoat, in case it's raining and maybe a pair of gloves, in case things get way too dirty.

How to change tires on your Wailea jeep rental the correct way?

Got everything on you in your Wailea jeep rental? Good!

 

The first thing you should do if you get a flat tire is to find a safe place to take care of the problem. So, if you notice you're in trouble, avoid stopping the car in the middle of the road and instead, slow down and pull over on the side of it, if you can.

 

Next, don't forget to turn on your hazard lights so that others will notice you and avoid a freak accident.

 

Before changing a tire on your Wailea jeep rental, always make sure you pull the handbrake. You don't want your car to start moving while you work to solve the problem.

 

Now, place the jack under your jeep rental, find a good spot on the axle and lift the tire off the ground a few inches.

 

Next, take the wrench and loosen the lug nuts. You may need to put some effort into this step, just be careful not to damage the lug wrench, or the term screwed may take a whole a new meaning here.

 

Pull out the wheel of your Wailea jeep rental and place it somewhere away from the vehicle. Place the spare tire in place of the flat tire and secure it. Tight.

 

Don't forget to put your tools back where they belong and secure the flat tire in the same spot your spare one used to be. You're not exactly supposed to leave that in the middle of the road.

 

That's it! Now that you've changed the flat tire on your Wailea jeep rental, you can continue your island adventure! Don't forget to be extra careful, you don't have a spare tire anymore in case you get a NEW flat tire on your way to your destination.
