Loosen the lug nuts counterclockwise. Next, jack up car at the jack points (there are covers below the rocker panels). Jack up car, unloosen all the lug nuts. Remove wheel, replace wheel. Tighten lug nuts until they are seated against the rim. Lower car. Tighten lug nuts crosswise. Next stop, have the lug nuts torqued down.

Asked in Hand Tools
Why do tire installation shops always put the lug nuts on so tight?
The lug nuts need to be secure so that they don't become loose over time and fall off. So you want them to be placed tightly with a torque wrench. The problem of being unable to loosen them later is due to the fact that appropriate lubricants weren't applied before the lug nuts were put in place originally. When you have tires replaced/rotated/balanced, ask the shop to be sure that the wheel is properly lubricated before the lug nuts are tightened. Later, you should be able to loosen them yourself with a lug nut wrench.

Can someone tell me how to change a tire?
You need a spare tire, car jack, and lug nut wrench. Remove hub cap, loosen lug nuts, DO NOT remove or loosen completely. Jack up the car then finish removing the 5 lug nuts. Remove the bad tire and replace with your spare. Put the lug nuts back on the tire but do not tighten them completely yet. lower the jack until the car is on the ground. When tightening down the lug nuts make sure you do every other lug nut until they are all tightened down. You do it this way to ensure they are tightening the wheel equally. Road side assistance like AAA can help as well if you don't have the items you need to DIY.
