After getting tires installed, brake work done or any service that requires that the wheels be removed from a vehicle, it is essential to return to the dealership to have the wheels re-torqued. Newer alloy wheels and older steel wheels with rust buildup are particularly in need. Without getting a re-torque there is a chance that the newly installed wheel can come loose.
Re-torquing the wheels involves tightening the lug nuts to help ensure they're not too tight or too loose. Too tight, and the nuts can damage bolt threads, break fasteners or warp new rotors. Too loose, and your wheel could fall off when you're driving.
Simcoe County Chrysler recommends that motorists return after driving 100km to have wheel nuts re-torqued. The re-torque wheel nuts service only takes minutes and is performed free of charge at Simcoe County Chrysler in Orillia, Ontario.
