    Question If you had to, could you change a flat tire on your vehicle

    Yes, except I think I'd have a hard time getting the nuts off. They tighten them so tight when you get new tires put on.

    I could if I had to. I know how but have always been blessed that a man has always been around and done it for me.

    It's one of those things I keep thinking I should know how to do and often think I should ask my ex to show me.

    Somehow I never get round to it!

    YES, and I have had to do it twice all by myself. The first time, did it and went home. The second time was during a thunderstorm and I called dh but by the time he had gotten there, I had changed the tire and was waiting in the car.

    Yes. Thankfully I was taught how to do that. We live in a rural community where you may or may not see anyone pass by for sometime. So you may be stranded unless you know how to do it yourself.

    Sure can-- and have several times. My dad would not let my sister and I drive a car until we could change the tires. "I will not have my daughters at the mercy of some creep on the roads."

    Could I?! Yes...have I?! No....

    I remember only have had one flat in my lifetime and a lady that lived close to my aunt stopped and took me to her house,where I called dh at work.

    Now,if I had a flat tire,I would prob sit in the van with the doors locked crying as I called Steve....I'd be to afraid to get out!
