## How to Remove Depax Wheels and Tires

Materials:

Jack
Jack stands
Lug wrench
Tire iron
Gloves (optional)

Safety Precautions:

Park the vehicle on a level, stable surface.
Engage the parking brake.
Block the wheels opposite the ones being removed to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
Never work under a vehicle supported only by a jack. Always use jack stands for safety.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

### 1. Lift the Vehicle

Position the jack under the designated jack point near the wheel that needs to be removed. Refer to the vehicle’s owner’s manual for specific jack point locations.
Slowly pump the jack to raise the vehicle to a height where the tire is approximately 6 inches off the ground.

### 2. Place Jack Stands

Position the jack stands next to the jack, ensuring they are stable and secure.
Slowly lower the jack to transfer the weight of the vehicle to the jack stands.
Remove the jack completely.

### 3. Loosen the Lug Nuts

Use the lug wrench to loosen the lug nuts on the wheel that needs to be removed.
Do not remove the lug nuts completely at this stage.

### 4. Remove the Lug Nuts and Tire

Once the lug nuts are loosened, carefully remove them by hand.
Grip the tire firmly and pull it straight towards you to detach it from the wheelbase.

### 5. Remove the Wheel

Once the tire is removed, the wheel can be slid off the wheelbase.
Place the tire and wheel in a safe location for storage or repair.

### 6. Repeat for Other Wheels

### Tips:

If the lug nuts are tight, you may need to use a breaker bar for additional leverage.
Be sure to check the tire pressure before reinstalling the wheels.
Tighten the lug nuts in a star pattern to ensure even distribution of force.
Reinstall the wheels and tires in the reverse order of removal.

### Additional Notes:

If you are not comfortable removing depax wheels and tires yourself, it is recommended to seek professional assistance.
Always refer to the vehicle’s owner’s manual for specific instructions and precautions.
Regular maintenance and inspection of tires and wheels can help prevent accidents and extend their lifespan.
