    You can pick up starter bolts from Home Depot. Just bring that size you have and buy two or three. I usually use them on new tires that are really stiff. Once the are used there really is no need to use the longer bolts.

    Yup! It’s best to have a torque wrench for all the different ranges you may need. I know I have at least three different ones for the values I need to hit.

    Got my first one done. Was a bad install but it was tedious for my first time. They’ll go faster (this one took 45 minutes).

    Question...I didn’t hear a “pop” when the rear bead seated. The tire is holding 30 psi and has no leaks (tested with soap). Does a pop always happen? Did I do something wrong? Tried to picture the rear bead and you can see the wheel seated in the bead.

    Here isn’t the front bead. I would say it sits deeper into the tire and goes a little bit past the ribbed section of the tire.

    Looks good, you won't always hear a pop.

    Awesome! Thanks guys! This has been a ton of help!

    First one is complete and nearly through the 2nd. Color combo came out exactly how I wanted it. Anvil inner, black ring, pink bolts.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
