So, instead of putting in all that muscle, throw that bad boy in number one gear and let the wheel do the hard work for you. Yes, you heard me right!

As the wheel starts turning forward, guess what? With the spanner on, the nuts turn in the opposite direction thereby unscrewing.

It’s like an unscrewing party for those nuts! One by one, they loosen up, and you barely have to lift a finger.

It’s like the truck is saying, “Don’t worry, I got this.”

Now, I ain’t saying this trick will turn you into a tyre-changing superhero, but it sure beats the old-school way.

Plus, it’s a lifesaver on those long distance trips when time and energy are precious commodities.

The only downside is that this trick only works on the drive axle.

So, if you’ve got a flat on one of those other axles, you’ll still need to break out the muscle and use the conventional method.

But hey, when it does work, it’s like having a secret weapon in your tyre-changing arsenal.

So there you have it, fellow truckers – a smart, unconventional way to make that tyre swap a breeze.

Remember, stay safe out there on the roads, and when you’re facing that drive axle flat, just throw it in gear number one and let the wheel do the talking. Happy trucking!
