File this under: "Perks of Having Your Own Pit Crew" ... but Danica Patrick tells TMZ Sports she's never had to change her own tire. Ever.
The NASCAR driver was out in NYC today when our photog asked if she's the kinda gal who fixes her own flats ... or if she phones in to AAA for help.
Danica admitted she's never pulled out the wrench on her own ride -- but says if it ever came down to it, "I could probably figure it out."
