Our list of "1,001 car things to do before you die" includes some aspirational, once-in-a-lifetime challenges, but that doesn't mean we ignore the basics. "The List Shorts" is a new subsection of The List that focuses on repairs, maintenance and attainable automotive fun.

For our first installment, host Jessi Combs demonstrates something every driver should know how to do: change a tire. Whether you're met with an unexpected flat or need to swap your summer tires for winter wheels, knowing how to change a tire is essential automotive knowledge.

Watch as Jessi checks change a tire off of her list.

        So kind of you Larry. I myself was confused as to whether or not I was a man. Since I don't say crap about people behind the internet, it turns out I am a man.

      Everyone knows how to change a wheel, now, I can't say I have tried to change a tire on the side of the road.

      Seriously? This is a joke right? Talk about a nothing piece or if you prefer, just plain stupid and a waste

      The part that most people in today's society doesn't understand is where to put the jack. Use the frame people, the frame!!!!!!!!!

        Ever heard of unibody? You had better use the recommended jacking locations or you will put a whole in your floor or some other vital component.

        Use the AXLE, dude, the AXLE, like it says in the manual and on the stickers, etc.

      A proper classy girly clothes would have been much better.

      Sure... I'll watch Jesse do something. Like how they skipped the part where you fiddle the tire hanger out of the wheel center? I'm not convinced 130# of host standing on a two-foot lug wrench is giving proper torque specs much respect.
