Car Wheels use a special type of bolt to secure the wheel to the axle. These bolts are often referred to as Lug Nuts. Lug Nuts come in a variety of sizes.

No, 2mm is a big difference, the hub size matters also, the 5x112 is a bolt pattern for mercedes, volkswagen, audi, and the factory wheels are hubcentric with ball seat lug bolts, most other cars are conical seat lug nuts and lug centric, so if you tried to use them you would nev er get all the vibration out of them from the wheels n.ot being centered..

How do you remove a lug nut?

Turn it counterclockwise on the vast majority of automobiles. There were some cars in the early days that did have lug nuts that had left handed threads on the left side of the car, but not today. An impact wrench will make quick work of removing lug nuts. Do not use a impact wrench to install the lug nuts. Use a torque wrench and tighten them to the exact specifications listed in your owner's manual. Otherwise you will warp the rotors.

How do you replace lug bolts?

Lug bolts are normally hammered or drawn into place with the use of the wheel. They are removed the same. Remove the wheel, you may have to set the rotor in such a position that allows for the lug removal. Usually a very small gap allows for it. Take a good hammer and carefully pound it in till it pops out the back. Take your new one and push it in than tap it a few times till enough thread is showing that it can be drawn in all the way with the wheel installed.

lug bolts are pressed in to either the axle or rotor from the back. first remove the drum or rotor for easy access, using a punch push the remaining part of the bolt out of its hole, then feed the new one in, you can use a bunch of washers and the lug nut to press it in just keep stacking washers and tightening until the lug is fully set in the axle, a hammer is not recommended

How do you change the wheel cover in 1999 Ford contour SE?

I belive on Contours they just pop off. Use a screw driver to pry it from the rim. Some cars, use the lug nuts to help hold on the wheel cover. So, before you pry. Look to see if your lug nuts are exposed.(Don't confuse this with fake molded on lug nuts) Then, see if it looks like the wheel cover is between the lug nuts and rim. If not, pry them off. If the cover looks like its held on by the lug nuts you'll have to remove them. You'll have to jack up the car to do this. Just remember to "break" loose the lug nuts before you jack up the car.

How do you remove the front brake rotor from a 1993 Geo Tracker?

ON MY 92 TRACKER, THERE ARE TWO HOLES IN THE ROTOR THAT YOU PUT 8mm BOLTS INTO. THEN YOU ALTERNATELY TIGHTEN DOWN THE BOLTS AND THE ROTOR IS SLOWLY DRAWN OFF OF THE HUB. BASICALLY THE BOLTS PUSH AGAINST THE HUB AND THE ROTOR IS DRAWN UP THE THREADS OF THE BOLTS AWAY FROM THE HUB. USE A PRY BAR ACROSS/BETWEEN THE LUG STUDS AND HOLD WITH ONE HAND WHILE YOU TURN THE RATCHET ON THE BOLT WITH THE OTHER, SO THE HUB DOES NOT SPIN WHILE YOU ARE TRYING TO TIGHTEN THE BOLTS.
