The List Shorts #0255: Change A Tire
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.
