Installation Instructions

Race Star industries wheels require a "shank style lug nut", with the use of a centered of offset washer depending on the application. When using a shank style lug nut it engages more thread on the lug stud than a traditional conical seat lug nut. It is recommended to clean or chase the threads on the lug stud before installing the shank style lug nut. this will ensure the thread to be consistent and debris free the entire length of the lug stud and will prevent binding which could cause the lug stud to be damaged or even break. Once this is complete use some anti-seize for protection and lubrication on each stud and you are ready for the installation.

Hub centric Rings - a "Hub Centric Ring" is a ring that is placed on the center bore of the wheel and centers the wheel to the specific vehicle application. Hub Centric Rings are recommended as they center the wheel to the vehicle application to elimate any vibration and to assist in the installation process, however they are not required.
