stupid spare tire question

Hi,
So I finally have my new rear door installed and for some reason I'm having a hell'va time getting the rear tire on. I took all the washers and nuts off so I'm not sure what order they go back on. Also is there a trick to getting this on....never had a problem before but since I removed everything the nuts aren't lining up just perfect to get the lugs on...then when i had it on and had it tight it wobbled.

Thanks

I had the two nuts and the washers on and I still had problems. Do you need to make sure the spacing out from the rear door is the same for all three posts?

Concerning the wobble, be sure the lug nuts are not bottomed out on the studs. Adjust the nuts behind the wheel to move it out, this will leave less thread exposed for the lugs. This is what happened to mine.

Good Luck...
