Wheel retorque disclaimer

Postby Yozshutaur В» 10.04.2020

One, by Bio Ganix, has more than eight hundred reviews with an average of 3.

There is no way to determine if this custom tire and wheel package is within industry guidelines just be looking at it. The retailer that sold and installed it is responsible for all of the fitment issues related to the tire and wheel combination. The retailers that service have to rely on the installer to follow the industry guidelines.

There are a wide variety of guidelines and recommendations in the world of passenger and light truck tire service. As someone who is partially responsible for establishing those guidelines and recommendations, the challenge is to determine the degree of care that must be followed.

For example, when it comes to tire repair, the tire must be removed from the rim so the interior can be inspected. Failing to remove the tire from the rim as part of the tire repair process may result in a significant safety risk to the driver if the damage on the inside is severe. To use the tire repair example again, the industry unanimously agrees that tires should never be repaired on the rim.

In the world of custom tires and wheels, there are a lot of different ways that installers can end up in court. When it happens, the plaintiffs will focus on whatever guideline or recommendation was not followed that violated the standard of care and caused the accident. This means that sizes other than the OE fitment should have an outside diameter between The other factor that needs to be considered is the load index. The OE tire has a load index of , so the replacement tire must have a load index that is equal to or higher than Retailers can never install a replacement tire with less load carrying capacity than the OE specification.

A few years ago, I was involved in a legal case where the custom tire was. That was more than enough for the plaintiff to suggest it was not compliant with industry guidelines. Never mind the fact that a tenth of an inch in diameter amounts to a few millimeters difference in ride height. I was representing the wholesaler who sold the tires to the retailer and maintained that the installer was ultimately responsible for fitment decisions.

There is some controversy about speed ratings for a variety of reasons. The most obvious is the fact that speed limits in North America prohibit anything even close to the maximum speed for the tire. The issue at hand is the following RMA guideline:. Speed rating must be equal to or greater than what is specified by the vehicle manufacturer if the speed capability of the vehicle is to be maintained.

If that statement seems contradictory, then it will be easier to understand how speed ratings relate to potential legal action. Individual manufacturers will warn about handling differences when lower speed ratings are selected and everyone still agrees that the best practice for selecting replacement tires is to use the exact OE size, load index and speed rating.

If the goal is to avoid a lawsuit, then retailers should never downgrade the speed rating. There are just too many disclaimers, warnings and cautionary statements against reducing the speed rating if one is listed on the placard.

Just remember, if the OE fitment on the placard includes a speed rating, the maximum speed of the replacement tire must be equal to or greater than the speed rating listed. Why take a chance? Custom wheel manufacturers publish fitment guides, and they are the authority when it comes to selecting the proper wheel for a vehicle.

Installers must look beyond things like bolt circle and hub bore diameter to make sure there are no additional factors that can lead to a problem. Years ago I was involved in a case where a dealer rotated a set of custom wheels and shortly after the rotation, one of the wheels became loose and caused an accident. There has to be some degree of common sense in these situations because there are literally hundreds of different custom wheel options, and no one could be expected to even maintain a library of every wheel on the market.

However, the retailer who sells and installs the custom wheels is held to a much higher standard, so every fitment decision must be consistent with the guidelines and recommendations established by the wheel manufacturer — without exception. For years, the industry preached the importance of torque without addressing the factors that translate into clamping force. As a result, companies that switched to torque control devices like torque wrenches immediately saw the number of loose wheels and related problems go up.

And just like a recipe, if the ingredients are wrong or the directions are not followed, the correct temperature of the oven means absolutely nothing. If there is debris between the mating surface of the wheel and the hub or drum, the correct torque at installation will not be correct for long once the debris works its way out.

The best practice is to use a torque wrench set to the specification for the OE wheel. Torque wrenches should be handled with care, periodically calibrated, and stored at the lowest setting so the tension on the spring mechanism is not compromised. Torque limited extensions, or torque sticks, are faster, easier and cheaper, but they are not as consistent and rely heavily on the impact wrench, the compressed air system and the technician.

If torque limited extensions are used, then they must be regularly checked against a calibrated torque wrench. I also recommend documenting torque checks so you can prove there is a quality control system in place to verify the torque sticks are accurate. The most important factor is to have a torque program that incorporates the RIST procedure so every technician installs wheels the same way all the time.

They should know what to look for and have all of the tools and equipment to do the job properly. According to the make inoperative provision of 49 USC b , manufacturers, distributors, dealers or motor vehicle repair businesses are prohibited from knowingly making inoperative, in whole or in part, any part of a device or element of design installed on or in a motor vehicle in compliance with an applicable motor vehicle safety standard.

NHTSA: If the vehicle has a functioning TPMS system at the time he or she purchases aftermarket tires and wheels, the service provider would violate the make inoperative provision by installing new tires and wheels that do not have a functioning TPMS system.

In some ways, this is a perfect example of asking a question only when you are prepared for an answer. If the TPMS is working with the old wheels when a vehicle arrives, then it must be working after the new wheels are installed. TIA: If a motorist is made aware of an inoperative TPMS sensor and declines to purchase a new one, can the service provider remove the dead or damaged sensor and replace it with a rubber valve? However, if the malfunction indicator is disabled, a violation would occur.

According to this answer, the installer cannot force the customer to make the TPMS system operative. In other words, an inoperative system cannot be made inoperative. Ultimately, the rule regarding TPMS for custom tires and wheels is quite simple.

If the TPMS is operating when the vehicle comes in, then it must be operating when it leaves. If the TPMS is not operating when the vehicle comes in, then it can remain inoperative when it leaves, with one caveat: The service provider cannot disable the malfunction indicator light on the dashboard. Given the black and white nature of this issue, it would be advisable to document an inoperative system at the time of installation so there are no questions.

I am not an attorney, and none of this should be considered legal advice. In fact, I recommend that you take this to your legal counsel and your insurance company and go over each point so they can advise you on what you should or should not do. All you can do is protect yourself from becoming an easy target by following the industry guidelines and recommendations as often as possible. See two more ways to avoid lawsuits by clicking here.
