Call for dh or someone else. I know how but I can't do it because everything is so heavy and I can't lift anything

I have watched my husband do it and tried under his supervision once, but it is heavy and not something I should lift either.

Call hubby. I know how to change a tire. I physically can't. I call and he either comes or sends help.

I have to call someone. There is no spare tire in my car, only a can of fix a flat kind of stuff. I don't know why they didn't include a spare in the Soul but there isn't one.

I change it myself unless I'm out of town or it happens at night then I call my dad or use my road side assistance depending on where I am.

I always start to change it, but around here you cant get the lug nuts loosened before a man stops to "rescue" you.

I change the tire. Have had to do it twice on the side of the road over the years.
