When the wheel nuts are properly torqued to specs, the indicators are placed on the wheel nuts in a uniform pattern. Once a wheel nut has loosened, the indicator will become out of sequence, the company says. The driver can then have the wheel serviced.

Additionally, Wheel-Check says, a brake and bearing issue can also be identified by the blistering of the indicator.
