When buying new tires or having the ones that are currently on your car rotated, ask to have the rims installed by hand, instead of with an impact wrench. With an impact wrench, sometimes they'll cross thread them. If this happens and later on you have a flat tire out on the roadway, you'll not be able to get the wheel off to change it. Or, the next time you have your tires rotated they'll have to break the bolts off to get your wheel off. (this is from experience)
