Centering tool for mounting heavy Tires

RE: Centering tool for mounting heavy Tires
No reason to use those. Just put 3 lug nuts on and start to tighten them, just draw them up snug. Spin the wheel while you're snugging them further. You'll get it as centered as it's going to be. No need to spend the money on some specialty collars. If you really want to be a fanatic about it, put all the lug nuts on and slowly draw them up as you spin the wheel. You can't get more centered than that.

Besides, you'll scratch the wheel taking these collars off. And they did not torque those nuts, just drew them up with a 1" extended anvil impact- like most truck shops are going to do.
