Question putting rims back on..

I painted my calipers and brake drums today. That required taking off the wheels.

I should just be able to put them back on and go, right?.. (assuming ive tightened them all good)

They'll be put on at the same locations for sure.

I don't need to go get an alignment or anything like that done? haha

Its friday the 13th, thats when i took them off. hopefully bad luck doesnt follow to tomorrow when i put them back on. I'd rather not have my wheels come off when driving..

So any random pointers would be great.. haha

You should be worry free.... but since you got them off you should give the studs and lugs a nice cleaning with either compressed air or penetrating oil. You don't want any grime or debris in the threads. Torque them to spec (torque numbers in the owners manual).
Tighten lugs in a "star" pattern clockwise - 1,3,5,2,4. Then after about 30 miles - check and re-torque lugs. If you don't have a torque wrench- it is a must.
Lastly...
post pics of the calipers !!!

I purposely did not suggest a torque setting because your safety is important and my google skills are not your best safety net LOL.
I'd say in the 110 -135 ft.lb. range ....but seriously call up a tire shop and get a number. When I was a kid I just tighten em up as tight as I could but that is not the way to go.

cone. .......9/16-18..... 120-150........... 160-200.
Flanged..... 9/16-18.. ..130-160........... 190-220.

alright, that may be a smidge better.

Well.... Since many torque wrenches are in ft. lbs. It looks like your range is between 90 and 160 ft. lbs. I'd split the difference and go 135 ft. lbs. and then drive over to AutoZone or Pep Boys and ask em what you got.

125 foot pounds should be good. Recheck them after driving 10-20 miles.

If your torque the lugs higher you may not be able to get them off if you have a flat tire and are using a tire iron.
