If you use a nut driver made for the job you shouldn't have any problem getting them on. If you use a Channel-lock or Craftsman brand, you can buzz a dremel around the outside of it to fit the wheel recess.

ya that happened to me and then got a pain for it being bent down

after a while a side of the bumper got cracked and split

You can return any RPM plastic product back to them for a free replacement. It doesn't matter why it's broken/damaged.

just to let u know if you do that it becomes more prone to craking

thats because when you heat it up and then let it cool it becomes more brittle, and with that if you get in a big enough crash then most probably crack!

yes, I did just that but with a heat gun on low, and that seemed to work, I just did a little at a time.
Thanks newera152
