Hi Swelljet,
Pat here, so not sure ur question cause u have a couple,
1 u ask the torque specs for ur truck? Its about 100 to 125 ft lbs.
but cosco probably uses an air gun to install the wheels, so
if they needed that info they should have it!!
Normally most don't torques wheel nuts anymore!!

So not sure why they would not install ur tires with out
torque specs, pretty laim to me whoever told U that!!!

So if by chance they would not install ur tires, heck go somewhere
else, lots of tire places out there.
Just so u know, I have been in that Industry since 1963,
I owned 3 businesses one of which was a High Performance Business
for race cars.
Good luck to ya!!

What is the problem if the car is shacking in a high speed? My car doesn't vibrate on high speed until i change the the tyres into new ones.


Take the tires back to whoever installed them and have them re-check the balance. vibrations at high speeds are usually a balance issue.

Also make sure all the lug nuts are tight!

I have a 1977 Dodge. Model # M500, removing inner dually tire


THE INNER STUDS FOR THE INNER WHEELS ARE NUTS AS WELL AND SECURE THE INNER WHEEL. USE A SQUARE DRIVE TO REMOVE THESE STUD/NUTS. DRIVER SIDE NUTS/STUD ARE LEFT HANDED(STAMPED WITH A BIG (L)). AND PASS SIDE RIGHT HANDED. THESE TORQUE SPEC OUT @ 400-450 LB FT. OF TORQUE, YOU WILL HAVE TO USE A CHEATER BAR OR HEAVY DUTY INPACT!

Hum from front drivers side wheel bearing changed


Two possible problems both related to that bearing change. 1. Was the bearing packed with grease before it was installed? If not, another new bearing is required properly packed with grease. They don't come packed when you by the bearing, only lubed.
2. Incorrect torque on wheel bearing bolt. If you do not have the specs. a good rule of thumb is with the nut just slightly tight and the wheel and tire installed but jacked up, spin the tire by hand and tighten the bolt to a point that the tire will not make 1 full revolution. JUST! ie. 355 degrees.

Good luck
