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?
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.
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. .
