Mount tires only according to good tire mounting practice and proper tire mounting equipment. Careless installation techniques may damage wheels for which CUSTOM WHEELS INC. cannot assume responsibility.
Trial fit the wheel to the vehicle before mounting tire to assure wheel is properly matched to the lug pattern. Never force a wheel to seat against the hub by applying lug nut pressure. The wheel must go into place freely. Clear axle flange obstruction such as rivets, guide pins, screw fasteners or spring steel keepers before mounting wheel.
In mounting the tire on the wheel, be sure the wheel is properly positioned on the tire mounting equipment and the hold down cone is secure.
WARNING! Do not use spacers or adaptors to resolve any clearance problem. If spacers or adapters are used, user bears all responsibility.
Check for excessive stud length. Excessive length will bottom out in a closed lug nut, preventing the wheel from being properly torque to the mounting surface on the drum or disc.
Use recommended valve stem.
Use only Original Equipment lugs or CWI approved lug nuts.
Do not inflate tire in excess of 60 p.s.i. (40 p.s.i. in California) in order to seat the tire on the wheel. If the tire will not seat at these pressures, check for any unusual obstructions, proper use of tire mounting lubricants or a possible wheel/tire mismatch.
Tighten lug nuts in a progressive criss-cross pattern. Impact wrenches are not recommended due to the possibility or irregular or over tightening. Owner's manual recommended lug nut torque specifications should be followed.
THE INSTALLER MUST INSTRUCT THE CUSTOMER TO RETORQUE OR RETURN IMMEDIATELY AFTER GOING AROUND THE BLOCK AND @ 25 MILES, 100 MILES MAXIMUM, SO INSTALLER CAN RETORQUE TO PROPER SPECIFICATIONS.IT IS THE PURCHASERS RESPONSIBILITY TO INSURE THE LUGNUTS ARE TIGHTENED TO FACTORY SPECIFICATIONS AT ALL TIMES
Stud penetration into hex portion of the lug nut should be in excess of one times the diameter of the stud. Studs should be free of rust and dirt, not stripped and free of lubricant.
A non -metallic object is recommended for tapping snap-on type center hub covers.
Use tire manufacturers' rim width recommendations for wheel and tire selection. It is recommended that fender clearance be checked before mounting more than one tire.
Check for proper clearance and true rotation of all wheels before actually driving your car. Turn front wheels side to side to check for possible interference. Clearance should be checked while the car is on the rack in addition to final check with weight of the car applied.
Finally, drive the car at low speeds initially as a final precaution. (10 MPH max.)
Keep your wheels clean! The chrome finish will last longer if foreign material, dirt and chemicals are promptly removed. SALT WILL DAMAGE (BLACK SPOTS AND CORROSION) CHROME WHICH IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY
