Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to remove and reinstall the wheel on a Dodge Ram. This one's a 2008. You'll need a tire iron or 22mm socket and breaker bar, torque wrench, and jack and jack stands.

With the vehicle on the ground, using the 22 millimeter socket and breaker bar, break the lug nuts for your wheel lose. These chrome lug nuts tend to be swollen, so make sure your socket’s on there good. Once your lug nuts are loose, raise and support the vehicle with a jack and jack stands. This wheel and tire assembly, being a big off road tire and twenty inch wheel, is going to be real heavy. We're only going to bring it up a little bit when we take it off. Remove the wheel and tire from the hub.

Reinstall your wheel and tire. Start your lug nuts by hand, tighten the lugs as far as you can, remember to bring the wheel down evenly and always tighten in a cross pattern. Once the lugs are as tight as you can get them with the tire in the air, put partial weight of the vehicle on the ground by lowering it off your jack stands. Torque your lug nuts to a hundred and thirty-five foot-pounds in a cross pattern.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit 1AAuto.com. Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
