then you roll out the summer tires you had in the basement
then you bring out your hydraulic jack and plug in your compressor . Check and fill your tires to the correct pressure
jack up your car and start switching the winter tires with the summer tires
I also had an excuse to use my new wheel lug remover/tire iron
which can also turn into a heavy duty 3/8" drive T-bar
It has a sliding bar where you can move to gain more leverage, if needed . It didn't take very long as I had help. I was at work when my phone rang. It was our son. He asked if I wanted to change my tires when I got home. If so, he would get everything out for me to make it easier. He rolled all the summer tires out
and he rolled all the winter tires back into our basement and stacked them in a neat pile. This bi-annual task was done in around an hour. I decided to drag out my hose and a bucket of soap and wash my windows, headlights and wheels
It must be Spring. No sign of snow and I'm rolling on summer tires . . .
