Did some forum searching, but didn't find the answer to my question.
So my spare on the back has (3) lug nuts, and the more I tighten them, the back side of the tire pushes and deflects around the tire bump stops. I don't want to overtighten them to the point where I'm damaging the tire so I don't know how tight to go.
What I've done so far is to tighten all (3) by hand (equally), then a few turns more with a socket and check them once in awhile. Sound adequate? What are the rest of you doing?
