When considering a career change in the automotive industry, one of the most common tasks in car maintenance is changing tires. The role of a tire technician is often one of the first jobs you will do in a garage.

Before getting to work, it is essential for him or her to have an in-depth knowledge of tires and rims. This includes an understanding of tire sizes, proper tire pressure, and recognizing wear patterns. A skilled tire technician can quickly assess the condition of the tire and make the right decision regarding repair or replacement.

Safety always comes first, especially when working with heavy vehicles and equipment. A competent tire changer must use the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves and safety goggles. Additionally, he or she should be aware of the correct lifting and support points for vehicles to prevent accidents. All of this is thoroughly discussed so that students are familiar with all the rules and safety regulations.


After the theory, it’s time to get hands-on. Modern tire changing machines are advanced and require skill to operate them efficiently. A well-trained tire technician must be proficient in using the various functions of the machine, such as tire removal and installation on rims, balancing, and alignment. This not only increases productivity but also minimizes the risk of damage to the rims or tires.

You also learn to work quickly without compromising on quality. A trained tire technician understands the importance of efficiency and can change tires quickly and accurately. This not only saves time for both the customer and the company but also contributes to positive customer satisfaction.
