Default DIY: How to fix a flat tire,

Most videos on the Internet makes it look so easy. Of course the guy is usually a professional and probably done thousands of tires.

A real guy shows you what it is really like to fix a flat.

Ha! ha ha ha, yup. He had it easy though, at least he had a crossbar wrench instead of a single lug bar (which comes with all cars now) making it somewhat easier to remove the lug nuts, kicking down on a single bar is a little more difficult in placement.. He also wasn't using a scissor jack which also comes with most cars. Cranking that up with that single bar takes friggging forever, especially when you can't make a 360 degree turn with the lug bar.
