Don't forget to clean off any corrosion that can form between the alloy wheel backside and steel wheel hub. A wire cup brush and electric drill makes the job a snap. Wipe a very light coating of synthetic brake caliper grease on the backside of the alloy wheel and you won't find yourself with a wheel that won't come off after the lugnuts are removed. I struggled with this problem changing a flat in ankle deep slush one winter. It was no fun using the spare tire as an awkward thumper to dislodge the stubborn and corroded wheel.
