Depending on the condition of your lug bolts you may need to prep them first. I usually wire brush the threads, apply anti-sieze paste then run the lug bolts all the way in and out without the tire mounted for each lug bolt. If done properly you should be able to finger tighten the lug bolts all the way in and out without using a wrench. After this you are ready to mount the tires. I have used anti-sieze compound on my lug bolts for years and only need to reapply every 1 1/2 years.
