Hi, hopefully this is a simple question. I recently bought a new car, refused to pay for the locking lug nuts dealer scam (hate 'em), no problem. So I pick up the car two days later, get jerked around for 2 hours, can’t wait to leave. Get home and notice that the one locking lug nut is on each wheel. The key for the locking nuts and original nuts are in the trunk.
The car has 5 lug wheels, and like most old guys I was taught to take most of the pressure off the wheel before loosening lug nuts, and to tighten in a cross-pattern.
In my case, is it okay to just change out the locking lug nut on each wheel without partially jacking up the car? I’d have the dealership do it, but they’re over an hour away.
Thanks for any assistance.
