Riddle me this: have you ever changed a flat on your car – specifically, replaced it with a spare?
To me, changing a tire is one of those “essential life skills” one needs if one is driving a car. I don’t find changing a tire to be terribly difficult; rather, the hardest part usually is jacking up the car and/or removing the spare from its location. For instance, the spare on my minivan is located below the front seats. If I ever need to change it, that’s gonna be a pain in the rear.
