INSPECTION



Before putting on wheels, check for any cracks on wheels or enlarged mounting holes, remove any corrosion on the mounting surfaces with a wire brush. Installation of wheels without a good metal-to-metal contact at the mounting surface can cause wheel nuts to loosen. Recheck the wheel nuts after 1,000 miles of driving.
