If the wheel nuts cannot be tightened properly, then yes, this could result in pulsating at the rear end. Tighten lug nuts and recheck.
Also this may be caused by an abnormal spare tyre. Many spare tyres are not put into use and can become distorted or hardened over time. There is a date on the sidewall of all tyres, and no tyres are recommended for use by vehicle manufacturers over six years.

SOURCE: tire stuck/lug nuts removed

use 3lb sledge on inner edge of rim be careful not to damage rim rubber mallet won't provide enough shock to loosen rust. ps leave one lug nut on so tire won't fly off.

SOURCE: mechanics keep on breaking my lug nuts,Why?

Over tightening. They are probably using an impact wrench to tight the lugs because its the fastest way. Its not the right way though.
Here is what happens. When the nuts are tightened, the studs will stretch. This tension holds the wheels on to the rim. If you over tighten the studs you can damage them and they could fail. The best approach is to use an impact wrench to snug up the nuts. Then go back with a torque wrench and tighten to the manufacturer specifications.(lug nut torque for your vehicle is 110 ft-lbs ) Next time you are having your tires rotated or changed, make sure the mechanic uses a torque wrench and the correct torque.

It's a common problem when moister gets between tire tire and the hub. I see it all the time in my shop. Just put one lugnut back on loose and give the tire a good kick. That's the trick that works for me. :)

How do i change a tire on a 1988 ford f-150


Before doing anything make sure you have air in your spare..,A good Jack and spare tire removal kit....The kit should be under or behind the passenger seat..I don't like the factory Jack it comes with because sometimes you need a good strong block of wood to achieve the height you need to contact the vehicle..and sometimes they don't work correctly...Some spare tire release tools are under the hood..It is a long skinny rod ...You have to use rod or rod kit to stick through the rear bumper at the slot and turn the rod counterclockwise after you feel the rod connect with the release mechanism..,Lower the spare until it touches the ground then keep turning so you can have enough slack to remove cable from spare tire...Set parking brake while in park and use the lug nut removal tool to break loose the lug nuts before raising vehicle..They are removed counter clockwise..Don't take nuts off just break them loose...Block front wheels for safety with anything solid you can find if you are stranded..If you can't find anything rely on parking brake..It should be safe in park but safety first....Jack vehicle up..,remove all lug nuts put them in a safe clean place don't lose them..Remove flat tire..Install spare..Start each lug nut and tighten them all tight by hand..Snug each nut clockwise in a star pattern ..Get them good and tight but don't try to hurt yourself or break the stud...Lower vehicle,remove Jack..Snug each lug nut once again for safety..Put flat in truck bed for now rather than back in the spare storage area because it has to be repaired..Crank spare cable that held spare under truck clockwise until it stops.Remove tool..,Gather all tools used., remove blocks from front tires.,Head to a tire store...

I just installed the spare tire on my 2002 jeep cherokee, i was wondering if it uses the same lug nuts as the original tire


if the lugs are a closed top lug, they may not tighten down enough to secure the spare. if they are the open top/hollow lugs they should be able to tighten down the spare tire rim. so, if you have the closed top style you may want to get a set that are the open top or hollow style so you are able to tighten down a spare rim when needed. this is what i did when i ran into this issue with my 99 grand cherokee.

How do i change the back tire


Find the jack and jack up the rear just in front of the rear tire you are changing. (don't lift off ground completely yet). Using the lug wrench (also called a tire iron) break loose each lug nut.

Finish raising the vehicle just high enough that the tire isn't touching the ground. Finish removing the lug nuts, then pull tire off. Put new (different/spare) tire on, and put the lug nuts back on, and tighten by hand until tire is snug. With the car still raised, lightly tighten the lug nuts, until snug again (by use of lug wrench).

Lower car completely and tighten the lug nuts again (do not over tighten). At all points of tightening lug nuts, do so in a criss cross pattern. Start with one, then move to the one directly across from that, and so on (not all will be "directly" across at all times, so just make sure you alternate and don't go in any consecutive (clockwise/counter clockwise) order.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Loosen the lug nuts. Jack the car up to where the tire is off the ground only slightly. Remove the lug nuts. Pull the old tire off. Put the spare tire on. While holding the spare on, put the lugs back on. Hand tighten them. Drop the car from the jack. Then tighten up the lugs again.
