REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- If using a lug wrench, loosen the lug nuts slightly, in a criss-cross pattern, before raising the vehicle.
- Raise the vehicle and safely support it with jackstands.
- Remove the lug nuts in a criss-cross pattern, then pull the wheel assembly from the vehicle.
- Install the wheel, then thread the lug nuts onto the studs. Tighten the nuts until snug.
- Lower the vehicle, then torque the nuts to 76 ft. lbs. (103 Nm) using a criss-cross pattern.
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.
