Why would anyone call AAA for a flat or blowout? The phone call would take longer than doing it yourself.

Probably the worst moment ever was when I was 16 and we had to change a truck tyre using a forklift. I had this terrible premonition someone was going to die that day
I live in a big house and it's handy to have a pair of running shoes so that it doesn't take me forever to get from one area of the house to another.

It's weird that you've ever had to if you don't drive or own one. Did you have to help someone else do it? If you had someone over your shoulder instructing you how then that is an advantage.

This is what you actually believe, that's incredible

In reality it takes about 5 minutes for any human being capable of reading to learn how to change a tire, but by all means continue to look down on millenials over frivolous stuff like this.

Tell me something though, boomers. How does one learn how to change a tire? Could it be from your parents? Your parents, who are boomers? Why aren't boomers teaching millenials how to change car tires, hmm?

I grew up helping my grandpa rotate his tires. He actually taught me it to inspire me to get a good job so I can pay someone else to do it, but now I'm like this is f***ing easy, I'll save the money.

I blame both the parents for failing to instill basic skills in their children and the children who grew up to be incompetent and self-absorbed adults. Every shortcoming is always somebody else's fault and Big Daddy Government is expected to fix everything for "free."

if we use baby boomer as a reference, that looks like it was at least 20 years, millennials are early 80s so you'd technically be a millennial

    That's pretty pathetic. This is a very useful skill that you can master in an afternoon. You never know when your cell phone will be dead of not getting reception, so no reason to rely on that.

    It's not just millennials though, their parents are at fault for not teaching this when their kids learn to drive. Vehicle maintenance should be part of that process.

    This.

    There are small things in life that I am more than capable of doing that I'll pay to have done because it's a convenience (paying $3 to have my shoes shined is a good example). But once it gets to the point where having someone else do it is more time consuming or less convenient, I do it myself.

    If this is true (need source) its kind of concerning honestly

    Honestly you don't even have to be taught how to change a tire. The whole process is so straight forward there should be no questions on what to do. The first time I had to change one I had never messed with my spare tire (it is good to practice doing it once or twice), but I did the whole thing in 30 min. (and that was on the long side)

    While I do believe it sounds plausible, I would like to see this study TC.

    I am the only member of my dad's family at least who can change a tire out of all my cousins. Same for oil, spark plugs, breaks, radiator fluid, and power steering fluid.

    My dad taught me most of these but breaks was from youtube and spark plugs might have been as well.

    I'll tell you what it's no fun changing your breaks when it is 19-22 degrees outside, fortunately my associate helped me.

      I can't change a tire, but I can code.


      Why can't you do both?

      I had to change a flat on the side of a major interstate once. This was less than fun but necessary. I was still under warranty but and could have gotten a tow for free but it was going to take several hours. The temperature outside was 95 F and my car was all black. I just put on the spare and got it fixed later. That car had five flat tires in the course of 3 months. I think someone must have dropped a box of nails on my commute. I changed the tire a lot.

      Since then, none of my cars have even had a spare. The cars were too small to carry it and too low to jack them up with a stand.

      It's pretty intuitive aside from knowing you need the "key" and that you should use a star pattern when you put it back on. Also where your vehicle's jack points are.

      So yeah basically anyone can do it in an emergency without prior knowledge but there are some things that require knowledge to do it properly so you don't f*** up your vehicle, either immediately or in the long run.

      I was taught to first unloosen while the car is on the ground, then jack it up, then complete the removal process, change tire, put on nuts but don't fully tighten, then lower car completely, then finally tighten.

      Basically you want the tire on the ground when you put lots of pressure on tightening or loosening, because it's more stable. The car in this video was wobbling all over the place.

      LOL @ acting like changing a tire couldn't be done by a chimpanzee and is something to be proud of. I didn't know how to change a tire until I got a flat. Then I googled, "how to change a tire on a 2006 Toyota Tercel SE" and got detailed instructions for my exact car, and changed it in less than 10 minutes. I still wouldn't respond on a survey that I know how to change a tire, because I don't "know". I can however, figure it and pretty much anything else out with instructions, so who cares?

      When you carry around a magic box in your pocket or bag that can display step by step instructions for how to do nearly everything, ever, you don't need to learn specific knowledge on banal tasks.
