Before mounting Blaque Diamond wheels
- 1. Remove one wheel from the front AND the rear of the vehicle/axle assembly.
- 2. Inspect the wheel-mounting surface for any obstructions that may prevent the wheel from lying parallel to the wheel-mounting surface. This includes, but limited to rust, hub rings, spacers, clips, weights and rivets.
- 3. Test fit the wheels on the front AND the rear of the vehicle BEFORE mounting a tire on the wheel. Ensure the wheel properly matches the lug pattern. It is the sole responsibility of the installer to assure the wheel has sufficient clearance from the steering; suspension; brakes or drive components of the vehicle. Failing to test fit wheels for obstructions will void the wheel warranty.
- 1. Use extreme caution when mounting tires on wheels. Use adequate lubricant on the tire and the wheel to assure the tire bead and the wheel bead are seated properly on the wheel.
- 2. Follow tire manufactures rim width and rim diameter recommendations when matching wheel size and tire size. Never inflate beyond the tire manufactures recommended tire pressure to seat beads.
- 3. Damage to the wheel as a result of improper mounting and will void the wheel warranty.
Installation on the vehicle
- 1. Place the tire/wheel assembly onto the vehicle hub. If the wheel has multiple P.C.D’s drilled (AKA bolt patterns), confirm that the proper P.C.D is chosen before the wheel is secured to the vehicle.
- 2. Install the lug nuts/lug bolts in a crisscross pattern with a hand wrench to assure uniform force is applied to the wheel and the wheel is installed parallel to the vehicle hub. DO NOT USE AN IMPACT WRENCH TO INSTALL THE WHEELS.
- 3. Use a hand torque wrench to confirm the lug nuts/lug bolts are tightened according to the vehicle manufactures specifications. This information is located in the vehicles owner’s manual or the vehicles tire information placard located on the glove box door, the door edge or the doorpost.
- 4. Rotate the tire/wheel assembly 360 degrees and turn the steering wheels to the right and the left to confirm the tire/wheel assembly has adequate clearance from steering, suspension, brakes, drive components and the fenders/body of the vehicle. This should be done while the tire/wheel assembly is not touching the ground and with the vehicle on the ground.
- 5. It is the sole responsibility of the installer to assure the wheel is secured properly to the vehicle. Failing to secure the wheel properly to the vehicle can result in damage to the wheel, the vehicle and/or personal injury. Failing to secure the wheel properly to the vehicle will void the wheel warranty.
