  • When replacing a wheel or even an entire wheel set, always install tire chocks. I usually install 2 pairs, one on each side of the vehicle in a diagonal pattern
  • loosen/tighten wheel bolts in a star pattern
  • to prevent the wheel from seizing, apply grease
  • I also apply grease to the wheel bolts
  • have you had this experience where you always had to dig for your manuals just to find the recommended torque settings? When you only do this every 6 months or so, or when you had a flat tire -- chances are you will forget what the torque settings were!
  • I write down the torque settings behind the plastic wheel caps!
  • I use a torque wrench to tighten the wheels - to the manufacturer's specifications
  • ONE done, THREE to go!
  • finally, check tire pressures and refill where needed
