I always have been worried about a flat tire and prepared in advance by purchasing spare wheel/tire and low-profile platform jack. Another forum member provided directions for making a 2X4 wood plate with three pins to engage the jack plate. I constructed the wood plate. It works well if the tire is not flat and seems safer than a hockey puck. I also purchased a breaker bar and obtained a 1" deep well socket for the working end of the breaker bar. All of that sounds fine until you put these items into action. Today I ran over something I never saw that ruined my tire and brought me to a halt in less than a block. Help came from home with the spare and the platform jack. Now the learning curve begins. The one inch lug nuts are plastic covers, SO my deep well socket was the wrong size. Return trip back to house for 13/16 deep well socket. Just as I had envisioned previously, with the 2X4 wood plate in place, my low profile platform jack would not fit under the plate when the tire is flat. To solve this problem, I have a 6" 4X4. I pulled the flat tire onto the 4X4 and this provided the clearance to place the platform jack without resorting to a hockey puck. Everything went like clockwork after that. Resetting the pressure sensor in the new tire was a piece of cake. I just started driving. After a couple of miles, the main display stated it sensed a new tire and asked me if I would like to reset the pressure sensor. I said yes and it was reset immediately. Hope I never have to do this again but I am real glad I discovered the lug nut covers while in town. It would not have been pretty if I was on the road when I discovered I needed a 13/16 socket rather than a 1". Plus, I was happy to see the 4X4 worked well to raise the car enough to fit the jack under the wood plate.
