Trying to get the tire off the wheel? Or the wheel off the car?

It should take a jack and a lug wrench to get the wheel off, as far as I know. Then you take it to a shop and have them mount and balance the new tire.

I wish it were that simple. The tire will not come off the car! I called a desler and the tech said that there is a tool needed for the tire to come off. I have never heard of suchathing have you? The car is in my garage and here I sit!!!

Well, not sure about a new Honda, but I never heard of such a thing. Seems incomprehensible to me. Does every AAA towtruck driver carry the tool? Doubtful.

Hopefully some of the Auto Pro's will be around...I'll see what I can dig up.

I'm thinking he/she has wheel locks. Most cars come with them today. Requires a key socket you put onto the lug wrench.

Usually the key is in the glove box area, or in the pouch where the jack and wrench is.

Ahhh...I saw a post on a Honda forum..but I just thought that guy had aftermarket locks.
Didn't realize they were coming as standard equipment now.

Bitty...I guess there is your answer. Check your glove compartment and look carefully around the pouch for the jack and handle. Hopefully its there somewhere.

Check the owner's manual, too: it should tell you where the lock adapter is located.
