I was raised in the country so it was essential that I knew how to change my car tyre. I still have the knowledge but living in the city has meant that I haven't had to use this knowledge for many years.
Would you be able to change your tyre if you had to?

No ........but my Friends at the N.R.M.A. Can!
Yes, years ago I was part of all women cross country rally team and we learned how to change a tyre in under two minutes flat! These days I usually get someone else to do it, but it's nice to know that I could if I needed to.

My husband taught me how to change a tyre, so I'm pretty confident I could do it.

NO, and I've probably never tried it because I don't own a car.

One day.
Lucky then, it would cause quite a stir if you started changing random peoples' tyres! lol

No, that's why I have the RACV!

I can change a bike tyre though, and fix a puncture if need be.
No .
I make sure the RACQ membership it always paid.
Will add to my to do list , always fun to learn something new.

Of course I cannot -I cannot even use a drill, let alone do something as complicated as change a car tyre.

I am a member of the RAC so if I ever needed this doing, I would phone them.

Not something on my list of having to learn either -messy, difficult job!

I'm with jonaj. That's why I'm quick to pay up my annual RACQ membership dues.
As opposed to all replies, I can truly say I can change a car tyre, being in the car trade for near 40 yrs.
What the question should ask is, "can you change a car wheel"? The wheel is the rim & tyre as fitted together for the car.

Changing a tyre involves some very physically strenuous activity if only with tyre levers and a rubber mallet, compared to minor physical effort using a tyre machine.

On the other hand, in a perfect world, changing a car wheel is relativily easy, providing the correct vehicle position, a good working jack, correct hand tools and the required knowledge.

Vehicle terminology always makes me go grrr when it comes up, but I do smile at the same time. .
