Tools you need: # Floor Jack or Car Jack # Jack Stand # Tire wrench, Tire Iron, or Impact wrench. Rasie the car up, placing the jack under a sturdy piece of the frame. (Usually pinch weld, or axles). Put the jackstand under the vehicle, let the vehicle rest on jack stand, while keeping the jack against axle, or pinch weld. Use the wrench to turn each lug nut counter clock wise, to remove. (You may have to break them loose with the vehicle on the ground, or your wheel will just spin). Clean each nut with an old rag and place it in a safe place nearby. Remove tire. Put new tire on, finger tighten lug nuts, to insure that they are not cross threaded. Next tightening your lug nuts using the wrench. After you tighten the first one, move to the nut on the opposite side of the wheel instead of the next one to the one just tightened. This will ensure a more secure fitting of the wheel on the car. Finally remove the jack stand and lower your car. Retighten the lug nuts to make certain they are snug. or for a video go to http://www.noveights.com/id97.html

No, the 94 escort is a 2nd generation and the 97 is a third generation. 1991-1996 is 2nd generation and 1997-2002 is a third generation.

The recommended tire pressure for your 1997 Toyota Tercel is dependent upon the type of tire that is currently on the vehicle. In general, the tire pressure will be stamped on the side of the tire.

To change an actual tire you need a tire machine to get it off the rim and the new one on. -If you mean the change the WHEEL and tire on a car, then you just need a jack and a tire wrench.
