Installation, Care & Maintenance
- You may test fit an individual wheel mounted with tire. But, before mounting tires to all the wheels, check the vehicle brake, hub, fender and suspension clearance to ensure fitment.
- Ensure fitment before full installation as installed wheels cannot be returned.
- Be sure to mount tires onto wheels only with equipment specifically designed for alloy wheels.
- During installation, do not use equipment that will scratch, scrape or abrade the wheels as this will void the warranty.
- Though they may be needed for some fitments; wheel adaptors and spacers are not inherently recommended. If installed, the purchaser assumes all responsibility and liability.
- The use of clip-on style wheel weights is not recommended. Clip-on style wheel weights can damage the wheel finish and void the warranty. Please use only self-adhesive tape weights when balancing the wheels.
- Please ensure you use the correct type of lug nut. Use of incorrectly sized or incorrect seat of lugs will void the warranty.
- As always, please use the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended torque specifications when tightening lug nuts. This can typically be confirmed within the vehicle manual.
- It is recommended to re-torque the lug nuts after 75-100 miles of driving.
- Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors (TPMS) – Some vehicles have an indirect system that does not require the use of valve sensors or TPMS. If your vehicle is equipped with a TPMS system, you must install new or reinstall the original sensors into the wheels. Some TPMS require activation after installation. Refer to your owner’s manual for the specifics.
CARE & MAINTENANCE
- Keep it clean! Keeping your wheels clean on a continual (weekly) basis is the best way to maintain their “like new” finish and luster. Inclement weather conditions, plus neglect, can expedite the appearance of blemishes.
- Never clean your wheels immediately after a long trip (while they are hot) as this can cause blemishes if the wheels are too hot.
- Water mixed with a mild, non-abrasive cleaner is the best solution for cleaning your wheels. Do not use abrasive or corrosive cleaners. Make it easy; if it is not safe for the paint on your vehicle, it is probably not safe for your wheels.
- Be cautious of applying protectants. Applying a coat of non-abrasive carnauba-based auto wax, after cleaning, is all the protection your wheels should need. These installation and care instructions must be given to the retail purchaser.
