Hey guys,

got my cali k/o's today and want to put them on my ride.
They got two white and two red adapters. Where do I put
which one ? The car is a rear wheel drive......

Do you put little grease or something in the nut before
hammering it on the adapter ? Heard that but doesn't
it make the rim come loose?

Does it matter at all what adapter I put on which side
or is it only important to put the nuts as engraved on
left on right ???

Thanks 4 the info

red right
white left
i forgot wha kind of grease i used...something wit a L i think spray it on the thread of the adapter
when u set the rim in place make sure the teeth catch the adapter..(just put in hard on the rim and try to move it so it sinks into the adapter teeth)
when ur gonna put the front ones on have someone press the brake inside the car so the wheel dont move
once u put it on and are hittin the spinner make sure its tight then drop the car and hit it one or 2 more times...

every 100 miles hit the spinner once hard...do that for like the first 300 miles then just hit them once a week or everyother week...


if u put the adpater on the wrong sides the wheel will come off.

red passanger side
white driver side

I think the grease Calvin is talking about maybe Lithium grease. I've heard people say not to use that. The stuff to use is called Anti-Sieze lubricant. You can get it from any parts store. when you use it, i would suggest wearing gloves cuz the shit is nasty and hard to get off your hands if you get it on there.

with the adapter?

.....or did you spray on something like a screw-glue that
makes that thing stick extra fat to the adapter ?

Its not to get teh adapter off, but so that the Spinner/KO will not be stuck to the adapter permanantly. Remember, get ANTI-SIEZE LUBRICANT. Another helpful hint on the adapters, your KO's should always tighten towards the rear of the car, if they don't, you have the adapters on the wrong side.

check this out for pricing

that right there wouldn't be enough for 4 wheels. Just go to a Napa or something similar. I got the small jar from Napa and it cost me like $6 or something like that.[/b][/quote]
That's MORE than enough for 4 wheels. Allyou need is enough to cover your fingertip and just spread it pependicular to your threads in one spot. You don't want to goop the stuff on 'cause you'll be wasting it. Those adapters and caps are pretty well machined and spinning the cap on will spread it pretty evenly.
