Wheel Installation Kits

If you’re considering getting new wheels to upgrade the look of your vehicle, it’s important to make sure you have the right hardware. Wheel installation kits come with all the necessary hardware to safely secure your wheels to your vehicle.

A wheel installation kit is based on your specific vehicle and it is matched up to the wheel/rim. This helps ensure that the products will properly fit your vehicle. Things to consider when buying an installation kit:

  • Lug nuts/bolts
  • Locking lug nuts
  • Lug nut size/thread pitch
  • Lug nut seat
  • Wheel/rim seat

It is recommended to buy a wheel installation kit when purchasing aftermarket wheels. The original equipment (OE) lug nuts/bolts will not work on the aftermarket wheels.

Not sure what installlation kit is right for you? No problem. If you buy wheels and include the installation kit with your purchase, we will make sure you get the perfect kit for your specific vehicle and wheel combination. If you didn't buy your wheels from Discount Tire and you are not sure what installation kit you need, please stop by any of our locations and we can match up the right kit for your set-up.

We offer high-quality installation kits that are available in a variety of colors and finishes to suit your style preferences. They can differ by lug nut seat type, thread pitch, length, diameter and even color, which makes it very important to make sure that your new lug nuts/bolts are a match for your new wheels.

Hub Centric Rings

Hub Centric Rings are not included in our aftermarket wheel installation kit, however some new wheels may use hub centric rings to mimic the fitment of the OE wheel on the vehicle hub. Hub centric rings are not required, but can often be used to help eliminate higher speed vibrations.
