I got between 8 and 10 turns.
I have a set of et lugs, however I already have my wheels on my truck now and do not have clicking (yet) so I don't want to eph with it and possibly cause clicking lol.
Things that I had noticed... The dealer had installed the new wheels, and shortly there-after I noticed the clicking... The dealer also swapped, rotated, re-balanced... yadda yadda... I never installed the wheels myself or removed them when I had the clicking.
I noticed that when I look at the wheels the hub mating surface didn't seem like it had been flush mating, the hub of the wheel had a circle around it where it seemed like from the center of the stud holes all the way around. The inside of this ring looked like the wheels were seated, the outside of this ring had a light layer of rust, like there was clearance. may have been vice versa, it was getting dark and I had a jack under the truck and no stands and no lift... This was on 2/3 of the wheels, the 4th had never been mounted...
Also, fwiw they did manage to scratch the wheels where the locking lug was due to too large of a socket... Ohh well... I give up this time, they already replaced all 4 wheels, then a 5th, then a tire... The other dealer had already paid for my summer wheels. I am calling it a draw now.
I found it odd that the surface looked literally like the wheel hadn't been fully seated on the hub.
I have not checked with the service manager who had said there may be a tsb, have been too busy... I will try to check with him next week sometime and see if anything has came up or any solution...
