Quick Wheel Question


Asked by Apr 07, 2015 at 05:07 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LTZ 4dr Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am thinking about putting a couple
layers of rubberized undercoat on my
wheel wells, but I have never taken
my tires off on my own before. Is
there anything to be especially
careful of when taking car tires off
and on? Any tips would help, I just
don't want an uneven ride, or
messed up tightnesses afterwards.

Make sure to start loosening the lug nuts before you jack up the car. Also set ebrake and put a block behind the rear wheels.


Anything about putting 'em back on to be careful about? I know you tighten in a star pattern, but don't don't know much else.

Nope sounds like you have got it
