    How to mount a wheel

    Hi everyone,
    My name is jiten and just bought 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 from <Link Removed - Mike>. I am opening this thread to know about more about mounting a wheel. So please share your ideas on how to mount a wheel? I am new here so forgive me if i posted in wrong section and move it to the right one.

    Are you seriously asking how to mount a wheel or am I talking to a bot?

    I think he is surprised by the question (as am I) because the answer is so simple: align the four holes in the rim to the 4 studs, then screw on lug nuts.

    Are we missing something here that is causing confusion? We might be misunderstanding the question.

    Surely it's the opposite of how you took the wheel off.


    The OP question, combined with a link to the absolute worst cars-for-sale listing aggregator site, makes it seem very bot-like

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    Are you asking how to mount a tire to the wheel, or how to mount a wheel to a car?

    If you search YouTube, you can find lots of videos explaining how to mount a tire to a wheel.

    Prove it. The verbiage, vagueness of replies, and generic grammar structure are just a little off. Not to mention the immediate link to a 3rd party website.

    What is your VIN, and location. I've yet to meet a new owner that doesn't share a bit about themselves with an introduction to the community.

    The other thing that looks bad is that the first 6 posts from this user were all within 9 minutes. That is a lot of posting in a short time...certainly raises red flags. The posts might be from a real person employed to setup accounts, get a post count up a bit, then post junk links.

    Or he's trying to spike clicks on the link in his first post. A car for sale site that we've never heard of.

    Anyone that doesn't know how to change a wheel has no business owning a DeLorean whatsoever.

    This bot is not only a bot but a jackass as well.
