    Sorry princess, but that gets obscured by the amount of deflection in the tires, fork, saddle, handlebar tape, frame, and even your gloves. I prefer to receive occasional updates with special offers from carefully selected third party partners. Let's start by discussing the proper way to install a knock-off wheel, according to the manufacturer. Custom short adapter bolt circle 5 on 4.

    Nothing, if you know how to bolt them up. If you buy a set of imported knockoff wheels, they will not come with instructions. Well, some of these manufacturers should think twice. There are many consequences if you bolt them on the wrong way.

    The first mistake is one of the most common, people bolting them on backwards. Most manufacturers paint or powdercoat their adapters to prevent them from rusting out, as well as to help identify what side they bolt on to. The colors that are most commonly used by manufacturers are white and red. When they do so, they take off the color identification provided by the manufacturer.

    When people chrome plate the adapters, they sometimes get them back from the chrome shop with no markings. It can be confusing but solved by checking the actual knockoffs. Most of the knockoffs out there will also have arrows on which way to hammer them on. Other tips when bolting on the adapters is to use the right lug nuts.

    The ones that you should use are usually the old factory-style lug nuts that you can usually find in the help section of your local automotive store. These lug nuts are the ones that allow the wheel to engage with the adapter. This is important because if the wheel and adapter do not engage, the car will not roll forward or backward. You should torque the lugs down properly. If not, they could come loose. If you overtighten them, it could snap the studs once the car starts rolling.

    Also, for you lowriders, all of the added weight of hydraulics adds extra pressure on the lugs. Always use a little lube on the knockoff tread located on the inside of the knockoff to prevent them from seizing on to the adapter.

    This tends to happen because of the different materials that both pieces are made of. If you ever tow a car with wire wheels, make sure that you have the wheel rolling in the right direction. When you first put on a set of knockoff wheels, go around the block or put on a couple of miles of regular driving before you start hopping or three-wheeling. Usually, when you do this, they lock and stay in place. You should follow the same steps when you take off the wheels for maintenance or when you pull your wheel off of the adapter.

    With all of this said and done, follow along as we show you some tips that should help keep you rolling right. As we mentioned, most knockoffs will have markings indicating which way they go on. The knockoff that locks the wheel in place also has the side that it belongs to, right or left. Overtightening your lug nuts or not torquing them down properly can snap the studs and maybe lose the wheel, as happened to this ride while driving on the highway.

    This sledgehammer is what you do not want to use to tighten or loosen your wheels. They will cause major damage to the finish of your wheel and can also bend the ears of the knockoff. This a view of the treads that still have a little grease or lube to prevent them from seizing onto the adapter. The factory-style lug nuts for steel rims are what most manufacturers recommend for the adapters.

    As you can see, these knockoffs have a taper to them which wedges into the hub, keeping them from coming loose. Tighten your knockoff with the tire off of the ground to ensure that the knockoff pulls the hub and locks it into place with the adapter.
