    I thought 20 minutes along a dark road was pretty good. I'm no country bumpkin though, but I'm also aware it's not getting me on a pit crew. But that ain't too bad, is it?

    Not bad at all. I think I've done it in 10 minutes when I knew the jack wasn't stuck in the hatch or slot. Helped change a part-time agate clerk's in about five minutes once.

    I'd say 20's ok. I got it done a little quicker on the one time I got a flat on the highway, but not by much.

    Well it was a little less than 20. And I couldn't see except when cars were whizzing by at 70mph coming around the bend.

    That's a solid effort right there.

    A few minutes to call AAA... Half hour to wait for them to arrive... A few minutes to watch them change it... ;D

    I actually had to change one a few weeks ago. It took me about 20 minutes which I didn't think was too bad since it had been several years since changing my last one...

    20 is solid, a respectable effort under the conditions.

    It's also a task that you want to make sure you do right... As soon as I finished changing it a few weeks ago, I drove straight to a gas station and had them check it...

    I have a hydraulic jack and a four-way wrench. You'd be amazed how much time those will save.

    My old man always envisioned himself in the pits of the Idy 500.

    I was hoping to be the first to reference this. Damnit!

    Probably about 20 minutes.

    One of the first things my Paw taught me after I got my license was how to change a tire. Valuable lesson, and when my kids get to that age, it's going to be one of the first things I'll teach them. Think of how much time/money you save from knowing how to change a tire. Now, if I can just learn how to change my oil ...
