INSPECTION



Before installing the wheels, check for any cracks or enlarged bolt holes. Remove any corrosion on the mounting surfaces with a wire brush. Installation of the wheels without a good metal-to-metal contact can cause wheel nuts to loosen. Recheck the wheel nut torque after 1,000 miles (1,610 km) of driving.
