WARNING

Make sure the mounting surfaces of the wheel, hub and lug nuts are clean before changing or replacing tires

When changing or replacing a tire, not removing dirt and grime from the mounting surfaces of the wheel, hub and hub bolts is dangerous. The lug nuts could loosen while driving and cause the tire to come off, resulting in an accident.

Do not apply oil or grease to lug nuts and bolts and do not tighten the lug nuts beyond the recommended tightening torque

Applying oil or grease to lug nuts and bolts is dangerous. The lug nuts could loosen while driving and cause the tire to come off, resulting in an accident. In addition, lug nuts and bolts could be damaged if tightened more than necessary.

Always securely and correctly tighten the lug nuts

Improperly or loosely tightened lug nuts are dangerous. The wheel could wobble or come off. This could result in loss of vehicle control and cause a serious accident.

Be sure to reinstall the same nuts you removed or replace them with metric nuts of the same configuration

Because the wheel studs and lug nuts on your Toyota have metric threads, using a non-metric nut is dangerous. On a metric stud, it would not secure the wheel and would damage the stud, which could cause the wheel to slip off and cause an accident.

Do not drive with any tires that have incorrect air pressure

Driving on tires with incorrect air pressure is dangerous. Tires with incorrect pressure could affect handling and result in an accident. When you check the regular tires’ air pressure, check the spare tire, too.

    Locking Lug Nuts (if equipped)

    If your Toyota is equipped with the optional antitheft wheel lug nuts, a special key must be used to unlock the locking lug nut for each wheel. The key is stored in the glove compartment, center console storage, storage box, or trunk...
