Single Rear Wheel Mounting Instructions & Fitment Check

 


Wheel Fitment Check
Before mounting tyres, perform a wheel fitment check in the following manner:
1. Remove one front wheel.
2. Clean the mounting surface of the hub with a wire brush and remove any retainer (spring) clips.
3. Hold the wheel on the hub and check for a flush mount. The mounting surface of the wheel must fit flush to the hub mounting surface. The back side of the wheel must not rest against any obstructions, such as the brake calliper, suspension components, balance weights, rivets, etc.
4. Install three lug nuts and hand tighten. Rotate the wheel and turn the steering column fully in both directions to ensure clearance from any obstructions.
5. Perform the above steps on the rear of the vehicle.

 

NOTE
Do not exceed maximum wheel load. Fitment recommendations are for REFERENCE ONLY. Customer must compare OEM vehicle load rating to maximum wheel load rating. Refer to tire manufacturer's recommendation for proper tyre pressure. Before mounting the tyre, perform a wheel fitment check to ensure proper clearance from any obstructions.

 


Stud Standout
Stud standout is the length of stud, from the wheel seating surface (hub or brake drum), that penetrates the wheel and engages the cap nut. For 5-, 6- and 8-hole cone seat wheels, the minimum thread engagement (length of stud threads in the cap nut) is equal to the diameter of the stud (approximately 10 full turns of hand tightness).


Use of cap nuts that have chrome plating on the contact surfaces can cause reduced and inconsistent wheel clamping.

 

This condition can cause wheels to loosen and disengage from the vehicle, causing injury or death.

 

                     Never use cap nuts with chrome-plated contact surfaces. Use only recommended hardware on

                     Alcoa aluminium wheels.

 


Mounting Instructions 

1. Front/Rear - Push the hub cover - with the rubber o-ring intact - through the inside of the wheel and position the wheel on hub.
2. Install Alcoa cap nuts (P/N's 005XXX). Do not use chrome-plated cap nuts (see warning below). Follow the torque sequence and specifications for your application.
3. Install screw-on lug nut covers on the individual cap nuts.
4. Follow the torque sequence as shown.


NOTE
Do not mount Alcoa 16x7 wheels on vehicles with 5/8" (.625") studs due to insufficient bolt hole diameter clearance (16x7 wheels have a bolt hole diameter of .620"). Also, 5/8" nuts have 90° cone seats, but Alcoa wheels have 60° cone seats.


Use of cap nuts that have chrome plating on the contact surfaces can cause reduced and inconsistent wheel clamping.

 

This condition can cause wheels to loosen and disengage from the vehicle, causing injury or death.

 

                     Never use cap nuts with chrome-plated contact surfaces. Use only recommended hardware on
