Subaru Forester: Maintenance and service / Alloy wheels

Alloy wheels can be scratched and damaged easily. Handle them carefully to maintain their appearance, performance, and safety.

  • When any of the wheels are removed and replaced for tire rotation or to change a flat tire, always check the tightness of the wheel nuts after driving approximately 600 miles (1,000 km). If any nut is loose, tighten it to the specified torque.
  • Never apply oil to the threaded parts, wheel nuts, or tapered surface of the wheel.
  • Never let the wheel rub against sharp protrusions or curbs.
  • When wheel nuts, balance weights, or the center cap are replaced, be sure to replace them with genuine SUBARU parts designed for alloy wheels.
  • When stacking and storing removed tires, place shock-absorbing material between the tires to protect the wheels from becoming scratched.
