spare tire question

Hi from Ga... Boy, times have changed haven't they ? My Dad made me do a complete and correct tire change Before I drove off in the family Buick the 1st time. I did the same thing for my son a couple of years ago. BTW, the moron who changed the tire on my RV in the middle of New Mexico was knowledgeable,curteous, and careful and I was very glad to see him drive up. Bought him lunch after. Regards, Craig

you should tighten in a star pattern. Start with any lug nut of your choosing. go the the one across from that. rotate clockwise one stud then go to the one across. repeat. This is done to keep the rotor or drum from warping. tighening in order will build literally push a pressure wave around until it hits the first stud tightened. it will warp at that point.

I can assure you that I would have the highest regards for any mechanic who came to my rescue for whatever reason in the middle of New Mexico or any other place I might be stranded, and I certainly wouldn't appraise his/her competency until I was safely on my way again.
