    Girls- Do you know how to change a flat tire from your car?

    I watched the Power of Ten the other night and Drew Carey asked the question to the constestants "What percentage of women know how to change a flat tire?"

    The percentage was 50 women of 100 know how to change a tire.

    I have AAA to change my flat tires.

    You?

    I heart AAA. I have no clue how to change one.

    I know how to change a flat tire on MY car ... anybody else's car ... they are out of luck! I don't have AAA, but instead use the cell phone road plan ... mostly because I have a tendency of locking my keys in my car ... with the car running sometimes.

    I had AAA for a while. Talk about awesome service! I had a stint where I think I had about 5 flat tires in 6 months.

    But I do know how to change one. I've never done it, but watched AAA guys and Bryan's changed a few (in a tie no less!). So in, theory, yes, I know how.

    Yes. Yes I do. However, since I got my Explorer, it's a pain in the butt to get the spare out so I call AAA. I mean, I can do it, just don't want to.

It makes for a healthier and happier you which makes everything else you do better.

    It almost sounds like you're asking if they can change their flat tire from INSIDE the car

    As one of the gays, I can change a tire, and have. It makes me feel all butch and stuff.

    My mom made sure that my sister and I could change a tire. I have been in a few situations where I was the only one that knew how to and that was in a group of guys and girls.

    I've always called AAA, but if I had to, I can follow instructions pretty good, so I bet I could do it.

    Re: Girls- Do you know how to change a flat tire from your car?

    When I was 16 my dad made my sister learn how to change a tire. He then explained that since the jack goes in different locations depending on which tire you are changing we had to change them all. It was not until much later that I realized he had made us rotate his tires for him.

    The funny thing is that is my one and only time I have ever changed a tire. I have always been lucky with the 'kindness of strangers' changing tires for me. I even had another girl stop one time and she changed the tire for me since I did not have a jack.

    Re: Girls- Do you know how to change a flat tire from your car?

    In High School I took auto shop as my physical science (the other choice was chemistry), so I know how to fix most anything on a simple engine (I had a 1972 Karman Ghia at the time). However the fact that I know how, doesnt mean I woudl every try it, especially on my tahoe.

    I did have to change a flat on my boat trailer once...

    A little piece of heaven

    Re: Girls- Do you know how to change a flat tire from your car?

    ^^^My dad did that! My mom can't change a tire at all. One time my mom got a flat tire on her way to work in Santa Ana, my dad was in Pomona, and my mom called my dad to change her tire. My dad said his girls would never be that way. So when I got my license my dad made me change my tires, my mom's car's, his van, the classic Mercedes (we had that my mom "fell in love with" years ago that only maybe drove 10 miles in 10 years), and my both set of neighbors 3 cars. What I didn't realize is he had me rotate everyone's tires. I realized it when my mom was telling the story and she was like "He had her rotate the tires for 10 cars just because I couldn't do it." I was pissed. But when my friend got a flat she called me first. I still have AAA though.

    That's what my husband is for.
