etyres, the UK's leading online tyre retailer, has released a short online video showing motorists how changing a tyre is so easy even a child can do it.

Most motorists dread the idea of getting a puncture and being stranded at the roadside waiting for a breakdown truck.  

Now etyres has released a short online video which shows drivers how they can fit their spare wheel in a matter of minutes and be back on the road in no time.

And to demonstrate just how easy it is, the entire procedure is filmed being carried out by 10-year-old William Stepney.

Tony Bowman, managing director of etyres, said: "Many motorists are under the false impression that only qualified mechanics or big strong men with bulging biceps can change a tyre - but this video dispels that myth.

"All you need to be armed with is the basic knowledge of how to carry out this straightforward procedure and if you follow our step-by-step guide you will never have to worry about being stranded at the side of the road with a puncture again."

The short video covers everything from what tools are needed to complete the job to tips on fitting and tightening the wheel nuts.

Once the spare has been fitted, the motorist can drive home safely and shop around for the best deal on a replacement tyre, rather than having to pay an extortionate fee charged by the recovery garage.

There is another money-saving advantage to being able to replace a punctured tyre with the spare - it could preserve the condition of the tyre so that it can be repaired.

Another common misconception is that all punctured tyres have to be thrown away - this is not the case, especially if the damaged tyre has been switched with the spare as quickly as possible and not driven far.

If the damage has occurred in the tread area of a tyre it is possible for it to be repaired safely and cheaply, often at a fraction of the cost of a new replacement.

All etyres mobile fitting vans are equipped with puncture repair facilities which enable minor tread repairs to be repaired to BSAU 159 standard.
