Ever had a hard time getting those newly painted rims and tires back on without scratching the new paint ? Or just fighting holding the rim in place to get the lug bolts started? Well a little tip that I came up with was to take one of lug bolts down to your local hardware store and get 2 or 3 2 1/2 to 3 inch fine threaded bolt of the correct size . When you get home cut the heads off the bolts
and thread into the hub just finger tight. Use these to hold rim in place and start a couple of the lug bolts remove the “studs” install the rest of the lug bolts.
Some of you may already do this but thought I would throw this out there.
