Does Roadside Assistance Change Tires?Jun 17th, 2019
Typically, roadside assistance will help you with anything you may need to get your vehicle up and running, and their call centers operate all day every day so you can always get help when you need it most. In general, most roadside assistance programs include changing a flat tire, battery jump starts, towing services, lockout service, winching, and fuel delivery.
How It Works
The roadside assistance number is available to call at any time of the day. Once you provide a description of your issue to the operator, they choose the best person for the job based on your main problems and sends them to your location as soon as possible. All roadside assistance programs have a network of towing and roadside assistance facilities that are pre-approved and ready to help fix your issue.

When you purchase a new Acura, the manufacturer includes four years of Roadside Assistance.
