What Do You Need When Changing a Flat Tire?

Flat tires are dangerous. Since 2008, auto manufacturers have included tire pressure sensor systems in their products. These sensors, however, are not the complete answer and will not guard you against ever having a flat tire. There are some extra items beyond the specific items used for changing tires that you should always carry, just in case of a flat.

Other than a spare tire, a jack, and a lug wrench, you should also carry a piece of 2x8 wood to act as a foundation for your jack. You also need a working flashlight in case you get your flat at night. Carrying a rain-poncho is always a plus as are gloves to protect your hands. Flares and wheel wedges protect you from unexpected dangers.
