    • Removing lug nuts requires a 21mm socket.

  2. Place Jack under the car (as shown). It's best to avoid using the jack included with the car. If at all possible, use at least a 2 ton floor jack. Use the Jack Handle to crank up just enough so that the tire noticeably lifts off the ground.

    • Place the rear wheel on the front of the car and place the front wheel in the rear. Tighten up the lug nuts and your tire rotation is complete.

    • Begin to tighten the lug nuts as much as you can with the wheel in the air, and then lower the car to the ground to finish tightening.

    • Tighten the nuts in a star pattern to avoid over tightening one side leaving the wheel installed crooked

    • Mazda recommends that the lug nuts be torqued to 108 ft*lbs to ensure that the wheel is secure

Conclusione

Verify a second time that every piece nut is secure and tight. You may have to do this again in the future.
