Default Front tire help

Hey guess, I know this is probably the stupidest question to ask, but I am changing the front wheels on my truck and I have no idea where to put the jack to jack up the front end. I know where the jack spot is, but putting it there does not get the front high enough to put on the new wheel. Please help a noob haha

Ok we got the fronts on. theyre the 17" titans but in the rear the piece behind the wheel rattles. It isnt tight, do I need bigger lug nuts? Or do stocks work

with a floor jack, i usually just go under the frame to get a side of the front up. otherwise, you can go under a control arm, but i dont really like it there. ive had to do it at work quite a few times, and a few times the jack has moved on its own

make sure you always use jackstands as well

so the brake rotor is rattling? that means the wheel isnt tight against it

the center bore is the same on Frontier rims as D21 right? the only other thing then is that the stud is bottoming out on the center of the lugnut tail and you need a different style of lugnuts

If your drum for your brakes is rattling then it is DEF not a lug issue. You have the wrong size bore. your tightening the rim against the cap of the end of the axle. If the bore was the correct size then the rim would slid over the top and around that cap and it would press against the drum as you tighten the lug nuts..
