Car Tires and the Single Woman

Updated on August 3, 2013

Single Women need Car Tires too...

If you are a single woman and you own and drive a car or a truck, you will at some point need some tires for your car or your truck.

Car tires are just as important as all the other little and big things a car needs to get you where you are going as well as stop you before you get there. If you have no tires on a vehicle, it will not go anywhere safely. Heck, even if you have 3 good tires and just one bad tire, you are still slowed down to a stop.

As a single woman you may already know that it is not too much fun to be broken down on the highway or even just outside the front door.

Some women may be able to change a tire; however, there are even more who are not able to even get the nuts loose enough to get the tire off a car or truck.

Being stranded is no fun at all whether you are in a hurry to get somewhere or not.

Having to stand along a busy roadside with a glimmer of hope that some stranger will happen along can take hours as well as put a single woman in a dangerous situation.

The best medicine is prevention and this is also true of car tires.

I would like to take this moment to thank wax115 over at Morguefile for sharing his car tire photo with us.

Car Tires are Essential for Safe Driving

Single women have a great need for good, dependable tires...

Single women have a great need for good and dependable car tires. Car tires are essential for safe driving no matter who you are or where you may be. Sure the vehicle will need other things for car maintenance and upkeep; however, it does not matter how much else you may do to keep a car up and looking nice as well as running, if you do not have a good set of tires on your car or truck, you ain't going no where and you are going there very slowly.

Having someone around to help you take care of your car or truck is nice; however, help may not always be available for every single woman. We are thankful for those kind souls who have stopped in their own tracks to help us fix a vehicle or change a tire. Being stranded at home or on the road is not any fun at all. It is terribly stressful and can be unhealthy as well under the wrong circumstances.

However, making sure that you have good tires on your vehicle is a big step in the right direction.

How to Change a Car Tire

...or a truck tire...

Do you know how to change a car tire?

Learning how to change a car tire or a tire on your truck is not a difficult task. However, most of the time the nuts on the tire rims are put on in a shop by using a high pressure tool. Those little babies are put on there to stay! Getting the nuts loose can sometimes pose a big problem for single women. Of course, there are those women who can change a tire right along with the best of the big boys.

Unfortunately, for others trying to change a tire might as well be trying to lasso the moon. You can give it all you got and still have nothing to show for the effort.

However, thankfully there are many different ways to get a tire changed. One of them may be depending on the kindness of a stranger along side a busy roadside. The other may take getting to know the subject a little better by watching others show you how to change a tire.

The Most Important Thing to Remember is to do some research on the tires you need for your vehicle and then find a dependable car tire sales place.

Car Tires are Needful Things rocking or rolling without car tires!

If your car tires are no good and they are not dependable, there will be no rocking or rolling along down the highway without good car tires.

If you do not know how to change a tire, try to find someone dependable that can and will change tires for you.

- Choose to make sure that your car tires will always be in the best condition.

- Rotate your tires when it is needed. Generally this is about every 10,000 or 12,000 miles I do believe.

- Shop around, but buy the best tires you can afford for your car or your truck.

- If you cannot afford a whole set of 4 tires at a time, you should consider buying them 2 at a time. Replace the front or back tires first and then replace the back or front tires within just a couple of weeks of one another.

I'm one of those who could not bust the nuts loose on a tire if you paid me a million bucks to do it. I'd have to hand your money right back to you and then ask you if you can change the tire for me. I am thankful that I do have someone who helps me with car maintenance and upkeep. Having someone who can and will do so is a real blessing.

About 3 weeks ago, we went and got 2 new tires on the back of the car and today we went and got 2 new tires for the front of the car, so I'm ready to Rock and Roll!

      Good information. I learned one thing years ago, and that's that when a wheel has been fitted professionally, using a compressed air gun, it's sometimes virtually impossible to get the nuts undone manually. So, if I ever do get a puncture, I call the breakdown service and let them sort it out.

      Great Tips! Everyone that drives a car should know how to change a tire. My father taught me when I was about 14 and it saved me many times! I actually just purchased Helo Wheels for our car and they are fabulous!

      I went to to find mine. They helped me pick out the best tires for my budget, and I didn't get ripped off. It's an Ohio tire store, so anyone who lives here should use them!

      Just recently needed to buy a new tire. The slow leak in a rear tire was from a sidewall nail puncture. Glad I took it in to check it out before driving 350 miles on highway!
