    • Grab your trusty lug wrench.

    • If you need some extra force use your leg, or even stand on the lug wrench being careful to keep your balance. This should break it free.

  2. Repeat the previous step on all five lug bolts, on each of the wheels you plan to remove. This loosens them, but do not remove them yet.

    • Re-install is basically the opposite of removal. However, as you tighten up the lug nuts, there are a few tips:

    • Tighten them in a "star" patter, rather than in a circular pattern. This ensure more even tightening.
