Warning: Before installing wheels, remove any buildup of corrosion on wheel mounting surface and brake drum or disc mounting surface. Installing wheels with poor metal-to-metal contact at mounting surfaces can cause wheel nuts to loosen. This can cause a wheel to come off when vehicle is moving, causing loss of control and possibly personal injury.
Warning: Never grease or lubricate wheel nuts, studs and mounting surfaces. Wheel nuts, studs, and mounting surfaces must be clean and dry. Tightening lubricated parts can cause damage to wheel studs. This can cause a wheel to come off when vehicle is moving, causing loss of control and possibly personal injury.
Caution: Improperly tightened wheel bolts or nuts can lead to brake pulsation and rotor damage. In order to avoid expensive brake repairs, evenly tighten wheel bolts or nuts to proper torque specification.
Do not use power grinding tools to clean brake rotor or drum to wheel mating surfaces.
