Nailers, wheel lugs and nuts are common household items, but the nail and lug nuts are becoming more common as cars become more and more powerful.
“We’ve seen an increase in the number of car owners who are replacing wheel lubes, nail lubes and lug nut replacements,” said Peter DeRisi, an automotive specialist and president of DeRisis International.
“They’re replacing them on a regular basis because they’re not going to be able to keep up with the increased power of the car.”
“You have to use some sort of a safety valve,” he said.
“We’ve had incidents where a tire came off the wheel, but we didn’t even have to have a tire replaced.”
DeRissis recommends replacing the wheel lube first.
If the wheel is damaged, or it’s damaged to the inside of the tire, DeRisti recommends replacing it first.
“That’s a very easy fix,” he says.
“It’s like replacing a car tire every six to 12 months,” DeRrisi said.
That’s because the tire has a high melting point, which means the damage to the tire will not melt off, allowing the wheel to be replaced.
DeRisco said he has also seen some older cars that have cracked tire treads that were left on the road for years.
“The treads are pretty brittle and it’s not like they’re breaking down as fast,” DeRosis said.
He said he had seen some cars with the wheels sitting in their garage for years and then had to replace the wheels.
DeRisi said he doesn’t have a specific list of what car owners are replacing, but he said a lot of people are replacing the tire because they can no longer afford to replace a wheel.
He recommends that car owners replace the wheel in the summer because the heat will cause it to expand.
DeRosis also recommends replacing tire linings and rims in older vehicles.
He says the heat and cold will cause the rubber to expand and shrink, causing it to lose some of its rubber.
DeRosi recommends that the vehicle owner replace the tires and rams in summer.
“It’s not as hot, so it won’t freeze in summer,” De Risi said.
